Without Fear or Shame takes viewers from the First World War through the Jazz Age and into the years of the Great Depression. These are years of massive migration from South to North, unprecedented white fascination with "Negro" entertainment and arts, and the day of a "New Negro" in politics and culture, infused by the energies of such leaders as W.E.B. DuBois, A. Philip Randolph and Marcus Garvey. Focusing on the creative movement known as the Harlem Renaissance, the program highlights Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and the women blues singers who bring their Southern style North. The hour also examines how conflicts arise over what art should express, when community leaders seek to use art in the struggle for racial justice. Some African Americans argue that art should present blacks in the best possible light, but many young artists want their work to reflect the complex reality of life in the black community. And to their mutual dismay, many white patrons see black art only as an expression of privitivism.
