"The New Negro Monthly"

In the violent summer of 1919 Hubert Harrison began editing "The New Negro" monthly, which, as he explained in the August issue, was "intended as an organ of the international consciousness of the darker races -- especially of the Negro race."
The Harrison edited "The New Negro" preceded by six years the 1925 Alain Locke edited anthology "The New Negro: An Interpretation."
This is discussed in volume 2 of the Harrison biography – "Hubert Harrison: The Struggle for Equality, 1918-1927" (Columbia University Press).
