  • In his 1925 article, “The New Negro” found in a special issue of the Survey Graphic, Alain Locke argues for Harlem as the centre of “New Negro” life. He states “Harlem, as we shall see…is the home of the Negro’s “Zionism”…The pulse of the Negro world has begun to beat…in Harlem”. (Locke, 633) The comparison of the “New Negro” movement with Zionism in an interesting one and has many implications. Zionism in its broadest sense is a political movement that began in Eastern Europe among intellectuals that called for the self-determination of the Jewish people in a sovereign Jewish national homeland separate from the Diaspora. Why was the use of Zionist rhetoric and connecting to the Zionist movement important for Locke and his “New Negro” movement?
  • “ To a New Life in the Land of Israel” Romania 1930’s and Theodore Hertzl Poster
  • German racist and anti-semetic propaganda during WWII – obvious why both Jewish and Black nationalist movements would spring out of this
  • Locke claimed that arts and culture would unify the africanamerican people in a culture of the “New Negro”Through their unificiation and differentiation , “proviing themselves” as a culture – would come assimilation and accepatance into mainstream american society
