YA-- A reissue with a new forward by Gordon Parks and a new introduction by Maricia Battle. Forty-five black-and-white poignant photographs graphically recapture a lost era of Harlem during the Great Depression and beautifully document the eight first-person interviews conducted by such young writers as Ralph Ellison, Richard Wright, and Zora Neale Hurston, all of whom were employed by the Federal Writers Project in the 1930s.
