A 5 page argumentative essay that posits that Mackay used his artistic genius to make a cry for freedom during the Harlem Renaissance, and that his story was written as a warning to his community that the beauty that was Harlem then, may not last. He asserted that it might be in error that Black Americans were expected to live in only a small neighborhood in New York. By accepting this enslavement, they were giving up their newly won freedom. The writer argues that although his contemporaries tried to hush his voice, art seeks to be heard even by only one ear, and as such, MacKay's story did not go unheard. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
