These four separate images were originally painted by Winold Reiss as illustrations for Alain Locke's 1925 anthology "The New Negro" - a hallmark of the Harlem Renaissance. Notables from left to right are: Roland Hayes, an internationally acclaimed black male concert artist; Mary McLeod Bethune, educator, presidential advisor, and club leader; Dr. Robert Russa Moton, second president of Tuskegee Institute; and Dr. W. E. B. DuBois, educator, civil rights leader, and writer.
