As I Remember It
A Portrait of Dorothy West
A film by Salem Mekuria
1991, 56 minutes, Color, DVD
Order No. W99233
This intimate portrait of writer Dorothy West explores the forgotten role of women in the Harlem Renaissance. From the perspective of her 83 years, the still active writer relates her memories of growing up African American, privileged and enthralled by literature. Archival footage and photographs, interviews and excerpts from her autobiographical novel, THE LIVING IS EASY, capture West's fascinating story.


    "Captures West's exciting, vigorous nature. A refreshing perspective on the Harlem Renaissance."
    Elizabeth Hadley Freydberg
    Northeastern University
