Carla Kaplan offers a new perspective of the 1920s in this lively, groundbreaking group biography that uncovers for the first time, the untold story of the whit ewomen of the black Harlem Renaissance. While every other imaginable form of female identity in the Jazz Age has been studied – the flapper, the Gibson Girl, the bachelor girl, the Bohemian, the Twenties “mannish” lesbian, the suffragist – the untold story of the white women of black Harlem, the women collectively referred to as “Miss Anne,” has never been uncovered until now. Miss Anne in Harlem brings to life an extraordinary group of women.
