Poetry reading of three women activist-writers from the Harlem Renaissance profiled in “Aphrodite’s Daughters: Three Modernist Poets of the Harlem Renaissance” by Maureen Honey, Professor of English.

The Harlem Renaissance was a watershed moment for racial uplift, poetic innovation, sexual liberation, and female empowerment. Aphrodite’s Daughters introduces us to three amazing women who were at the forefront of all these developments, poetic iconoclasts who pioneered new and candidly erotic forms of female self-expression.
