When the philosopher Alain Leroy Locke edited the Harlem issue of the Survey Graphic that appeared on March 1, 1925, he infused the literary awakening of the 1920s now called the Harlem Renaissance with a philosophy of emancipation that was a quiet revolution in thinking about what it meant to be "Aframerican," as he put it. This quiet revolution would not be achieved through politics or religion, but through a philosophy, that art embodied our ability to change, to grow, and to regenerate ourselves through art and become a new people.
