George S. Schuyler
(1895 - 1977)
While working as a journalist in New York City in the 1920s, George S. Schuyler was a fierce critic of the Harlem Renaissance, arguing that black artists should be seen as a diverse group, not operating with a single sensibility. A socialist in his youth, he became a conservative later in life. His books include Black No More, Black Empire, and Black and Conservative. Schuyler died in 1977 in Pittsburgh.
