Miss Anne in Harlem: The White Women of the Black Renaissance

HarperCollins  2013

Miss Anne in Harlem is the first book to tell the vibrant story of this small band of white women—many of whom hailed from New York's highest social echelons, many of them Jewish—who became patrons of and romantic participants in the Harlem Renaissance. In this formidable work, part social history, part group biography, esteemed scholar Carla Kaplan sets out to discover who Miss Anne was and understand her, often misunderstood, choices. Miss Anne in Harlem remaps the landscape of 1920's, writing Miss Anne back into the interracial history of the Harlem Renaissance and illustrating how she changes our perception of a historical moment.
