Alain Locke

a.k.a. Alain Leroy Locke

Author Code: AALL

Born: Sep. 13, 1885 - Phildaelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Died: Jun. 9, 1954 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at Harvard University where he graduated in 1907, Locke became the first black Rhodes scholar. He then studied philosophy, Greek and literature at Hertford College, Oxford until 1909. He then spent two years at the University of Berlin studying under Georg Simmel. He returned to America in 1912 and joined the faculty of the Teachers College at Howard University in Washington D.C. as an assistant professor of English, philosophy and education. He submitted his doctoral thesis, The Problem of Classification in Theory of Value in 1917 and was awarded his PhD from Harvard University the following year. He returned to teaching at Howard, but was fired in 1925 for attempting to achieve equal pay for black faculty. Later that year, he published The New Negro: An Interpretation, undoubtedly his best work and on which he established his credentials as a leading black critic and scholar. In 1928, he was reinstated at Howard University after M.W. Johnson became the first black president of the university. He continued to teach until his retirement in 1953. Locke was a major figure in the Harlem Renaissance. His other works include The Concept of Race as Applied to Social Culture (1924), Harlem: Mecca of the New Negro (1925), Art or Propaganda (1928), Values and Imperatives (1935), Negro Spirituals (1940), Cultural Relation and Ideological Peace (1944) and Values that Matter (1954).
