Chicago Renaissance Celebrated

Professor Emeritus Robert Bone coined the term the Chicago Renaissance to describe the dramatic flowering of African-American culture in Chicago in the 1930s and 40s. Professor Bone was a featured lecturer at a symposium at Agnes Scott College from November 6-8, where scholars from literature, musicology, women's studies and African-American studies gathered to examine the music, artists and literary figures of the Chicago Renaissance.
