Kathleen Tankersley Young (1903–1933) was an African-American poet and editor associated with the Harlem Renaissance. "Almost forgotten by literary history, Kathleen Tankersley Young's name appears like a cipher through little magazines of the late 1920s and early 1930s, and in anthologies of Harlem Renaissance and American women's poetry." Young died in Mexico in 1933.

"Almost forgotten by literary history, Kathleen Tankersley Young's name appears like a cipher through little magazines of the late 1920s and early 1930s, and in anthologies of Harlem Renaissance and American women's poetry." In 1929, Young published Blues: A Magazine of New Rhythms with Charles Henri Ford and Parker Tyler. While only lasting a year, it housed such contributors as Kay Boyle, Erskine Caldwell, Harry Crosby, E. E. Cummings, Oliver Jenkins, Ezra Pound, Laura Riding, Herman Spector, Gertrude Stein, Laurence Vail, William Carlos Williams, and Louis Zukofsky. Due to the magazine not being financially self-sustainable, most of its support came from Lew Ney. There were only ten issues published, the first six magazines came out monthly while the last three were quarterly and final 10th issue sixty years later. With both a liberal and radical aesthetic orientation, Blues mainly published actual literature, including poems, a few short stories, and some prose, but also containing a few works of literary criticism. When Blues ended, Young created Modern Editions Press, a new journal under her own imprint and published by Eric Naul. Two series of pamphlets where published in 1932 and 1933. These included poems, short stories, and a statement by contributors Dudley Fitts, John Kemmerer, Kay Boyle, Kathleen Tankersley Young, Raymond Ellsworth Larsson and Albert Halper. Each piece of work was paired with an original print by a contemporary American artist. For the second and final series, eight pamphlets were published in 1933 filled with works by Lincoln Kirstein, Horace Gregory, Raymond Ellsworth Larsson, Kathleen Tankersley Young, Paul Bowles, Laurence Vail, Carl Rakosi, and Bob Brown. On her way to Mexico in 1933, Young was reported to have died unexpectedly and the Modern Press Editions came to an end.
