Harlem Renaissance Artists and Writers

Series: Inspiring Collective Biographies

By Wendy Hart Beckman

Harlem, New York in the early 1920's and 1930's was the backdrop for an outpouring exploration of black identity through music, writing, poetry and social commentary. This period in history became known as the Harlem Renaissance. Ignited by a great migration from the rural South to the industrial North, the Harlem Renaissance celebrated unique aspects of African American culture and attracted audiences around the world. Author Wendy Hart examines the appeal of this era and the people who took part in it. James Weldon Johnson, Alain LeRoy Locke, Zora Neale Hurston, Bessie Smith, Aaron Douglas, Duke Ellington, Langston Hughes, Arna Bontemps, Countee Cullen, and Josephine Baker are profiled.
