Infants of the Spring

This minor classic of the Harlem Renaissance centers on the larger-than-life inhabitants of "Niggerati Manor," an uptown apartment building modeled on the rooming house where the author once lived among other celebrated black artists and writers. The rollicking satire's characters include knowing stand-ins for Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and Alain Locke.
