Black Cultural Center Celebrates Queer Author from Harlem Renaissance

Must Read

The event, as part of their Cultural Art series, covered the poems ‘Shadow’ and ‘Who Asks This Thing,’ and the short story ‘Smoke, Lillies, and Jade,’ each relating to Nugent’s experience as one of the only openly gay authors of his era.

BCC librarian Ula Gaha hosted the event as part of her individual campaign to promote the works of queer Black authors. Gaha said many authors that were contemporaries of Nugent were also queer, but few were open about their sexualities at the time.
