This chapter introduces Harold Bruce Forsythe, a musician who became one of Still's enthusiasts and commentators. It shows that while Forsythe's comments on Still were largely ignored by the popular writers of the Harlem Renaissance/New Negro movement, he had significant artistic collaborations with Still and even influenced Still's personal life. This chapter follows Forsythe during his early years, his journey to Los Angeles, and finally, the friendship that he shared with Still.

Keywords:   Harold Bruce Forsythe, popular writers, Harlem Renaissance, New Negro movement, artistic collaborations
