BHM: The Harlem Renaissance

Being the girl that I am, one of my favorite periods in history is the Harlem Renaissance.  Black ideas and voices were heard and spread quickly.  Black art, music, poetry, and political writings were at a forefront.  LOVE.

 

Harlem Renaissance

 

The Harlem renaissance took place around the 1920s to until sometimes in the 1930s.  With the rise of black publications, the prevalence of black writers increased.  These writers included Zora Neale Hurston, Nella Larsen, W.E.B. Dubois, and Langston Hughes.  During this time period, there was also an explosion of black art, music, plays and novels.
