Black History: Rudolph Fisher

Rudolph Fisher was a physician, orator, music arranger, and writer during the Harlem Renaissance. His first short story, “City of Refuge,” which depicted the clashes between the newly arrived southern African Americans and Harlem’s black society, was published by the Atlantic Monthly in 1925. His second novel, The Conjure Man Dies, published in 1932, is still considered to be the first known crime novel ever written by an African American.
