THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE What do you know about the Harlem Renaissance? The Harlem Renaissance was an American movement in the 1920s and 1930s that celebrated the African-American culture through art, music, and literature. The center of this movement was in Harlem, a small neighborhood in New York City. The musician Duke Ellington, the poet Langston Hughes, and the painter Jacob Lawrence were all part of the Harlem Renaissance. Their work, and the work of other African-Americans, was valued by many people. Jazz and poetry became very popular during the Harlem Renaissance. White Americans also liked and supported African-American art during this time, although racial discrimination still took place. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
