From Langston Hughes' 1955 collaboration with photographer Roy DeCarava in The Sweet Flypaper of Life, Wallace Thurman's 1929 collaboration with William Jourdan Rapp in Harlem: A Melodrama of Negro Life in Harlem, and the infamous collaboration of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston in Mule Bone: A Comedy of Negro Life, the Harlem Renaissance era was a time of flourishing inter-arts collaborations under-examined in contemporary criticism.
