Currently reading Rudolph Fisher’s The Walls of Jericho (1928), both Harlem Renaissance and Roaring 20s. High-spirited, and quite a pleasure. Like many black writers of the era, Fisher is not in the least politically correct. I don’t think these authors were self-conscious about self-criticism, in that it might feed negative white attitudes or whatever. I don’t think they gave a flip.
