Women of the Early Harlem Renaissance: African American Women Writers 1900-1922


[Published in The Crisis, August 1919.]

The hour is big with sooth and sign, 
   with errant men at war,
While blood of alien, friend and foe imbues
   the lands afar;
And we with sable faces pent move with 
   the vanguard line,
Shod with a Faith that Springtime keeps 
   and all the stars inshrine.
