Harlem and Moscow is an audio drama based on the true story of the Harlem Renaissance in the Soviet Union.  This audio podcast immerses you in the journey as you travel to the other side of the world and back again with America’s best-kept literary secret.

In 1932, a group of Harlem Renaissance artists and activists traveled to Moscow to make a film on racism in America that would start a revolution.

Among them was up-and-coming writer Dorothy West, looking for a break in her acting career and the chance to connect with famed writer Langston Hughes.

Dorothy West recounts her year in the Soviet Union, recalling the hookups, heartbreaks, and lessons learned along the way.
