The Survey Graphic was a United States magazine launched in 1921. From 1921 to 1932, it was published as a supplement to The Survey and became a separate publication in 1933. The SG focused on sociological and political research and analysis of national and international issues. Bidding his readers to "embark on a voyage of discovery," Editor Paul Kellogg used a metaphor of a ship in his inaugural remarks for the new magazine: "Survey Graphic will reach into the corners of the world — America and all the Seven Seas — to wherever the tides of a generous progress are astir." Article topics included fascism, anti-Semitism, poverty, unions and the working class, and education and political reform. The magazine ceased publication in 1952.
In March 1925 the magazine produced an issue on "Harlem: Mecca of the New Negro," which was devoted to the African American literary and artistic movement now known as the "Harlem Renaissance" and established Harlem's status as the black mecca. Alain Locke guest-edited this issue. Much of the material appears in his 1925 anthology "The New Negro."
