AS I REMEMBER IT: Portrait of Dorothy West Portrait of Dorothy West, is the story of an "upper crust" African American woman who became a published writer in the 1920's.
AS I REMEMBER IT explores this rich history through Dorothy West's eyes and words. We see the Boston of "THE LIVING IS EASY", the Vineyard of Dorothy's numerous articles, and short stories; we relive her intimate memories of the Harlem Renaissance; travel with her to Russia; and meet some of those brilliant women who refused to be crushed under the double yoke of rampant racism and sexism. Weaving this story with extensive archival film footage, photographs, correspondence and news clips of the Harlem Renaissance, Russia and early Boston, "AS I REMEMBER IT" presents a story that is not only fresh but stimulating and enlightening.
