Hubert H. Harrison Gravesite Marker Placed at Woodlawn Cemetery Bronx, New York

On December 23, 2014, some 87 years after his December 17, 1927 death, a beautiful jet-black slant marker with etching was placed on the gravesite of Hubert H. Harrison – the “intellectual giant” known as “The Father of Harlem Radicalism.” The marker includes words from the poem “Hubert H. Harrison” written by Andy Razaf, the unofficial poet laureate of the militant “New Negro Movement.”

The gravesite is located at:
Plot -- Salvia
Range -- 13
