After The New Negro

After The New Negro

(p.218) Chapter Seven After The New Negro
Alain L. Locke
University of Chicago Press

The Renaissance is often discussed as a history of publication, for it impressed many simply because of the rise in the number of books published during the latter 1920s. Also, the awards given by Opportunity and the Crisis both generated publicity for the younger generation and kept the older generation apprised of what was being done by way of sponsoring younger writers. After the appearance of The New Negro, Alain L. Locke's reputation was solidly established. At times this would be a distinct advantage; at other times, Locke's views, because of generational forces, would be at odds with both groups. Walter White, one of the most important figures of the Renaissance, was occasionally competitive with Locke. White enjoyed access to white publishers, because his own novel, The Fire in the Flint, had been brought out by Alfred Knopf in 1924 and then had garnered the enthusiastic support of Carl Van Vechten.
