The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke - Jeffrey C. Stewart

So far this is proving to be a superb biography -- well contextualized and insightful. My only complaint so far is with the endnotes, which don't reflect the depth of knowledge which Stewart displays. Without them it's difficult to follow up on some of the background information he details.
