African American poet Anne Bethel Spencer received wide acclaim for her work associated with the Harlem Renaissance, which influenced such national figures as W.E.B. DuBois, Paul Robeson and Martin Luther King Jr. She helped establish a Lynchburg branch of the NAACP and later became the librarian at the city’s only library open to African Americans. The Anne Spencer House and Garden Museum in Lynchburg provides insight into the life of this remarkable woman.
