Nella Larsen (1891 – 1964)

+10 votes
I've searched Nella Larsen in WikiTree, under all her various names, but w/o success.

Born Nellie Walker, father Afro-Caribbean, mother Danish.

Thought she deserves an entry if she has not yet, if only by the fact she wrote about the issues linked to mixed origins.

Thanks for any help.

Bernard, I think you are right unfortunately that there is no profile for Nella Larsen yet. If there were, it should be in Category: Harlem Renaissance, but there's nothing relevant there. Furthermore, she is mentioned on the free-space page as having no profile.

Jim, thanks for the link. She's not the only one to wait there, it seems. Some day someone will care, hopefully.
Thanks for the link, Jim. The page needs updating. Several of these notables have good profiles now.
Thanks for noticing that, Isabelle. I did a partial update of the free-space page, adding several links to profiles that now exist.
Added two more (though I don't see how Richard Wright is Harlem Renaissance.... unless it's another Richard Wright?)
Noting that Aimé Césaire has been on the France Project to-do list for a while, as well as Félix Eboué, who was Senghor's father-in-law.

I can try to find her Danish family. Maybe there is a link there to the tree.
