HIS 357 - The Harlem Renaissance (3)

The Harlem Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned the 1920s and 1930s. During this period, former slaves, black musicians, artists, writers, educators, and businessmen left the harsh conditions in the south and settled in that section of New York City called Harlem. Students will explore how the collusion of black Africans and white Americans resulted in the evolution of the unique African-American culture. Through the study of literature, music, philosophy, religion, and politics, students will learn the impact of these former slaves and freedmen on the society of the United States.
