Blanche Dunn, the chic Harlem Renaissance-era actress, photographed in Morningside Park in Harlem by her friend, Carl Van Vechten, in 1940. Ms. Dunn was essentially an “It” girl of the era: a mainstay at Van Vechten’s legendary parties and, as noted by the legendary Harlem Renaissance writer, painter Richard Bruce Nugent, “at all the Broadway first nights. A party was not a party, a place not a place, without Blanche”. Photo: Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
