The Harlem Renaissance was a literary, artistic, and intellectual movement that created a whole new type of black culture. "Through art, negro life is seizing it's first chances for a group expression and self determination." -Alain Locke(1926). Harlem became the heart of the "negro life". The renaissance was mostly of the literary kind, with some visual arts, but did not include jazz even though it's a black art form.

The Harlem Renaissance

Langston Hughes

Jessie Redmon Fauset

Langston Hughes was one of the most well-known poets during the Harlem Renaissance. White critics loved his work but most black critics found some poems as an insult to black harritage.

Jessie Redmon Fauset was not as well-known as some writers such as Hughes, but she was still a major part of the Harlem Renaissance. She would support up-and-coming writers, and for that, she was responsible for the development of many African American voices.

Important Events

The Harlem Renaissance was very important to the US because it paved the path to race equality among blacks and whites. Without the renaissance happening, we wouldn't ot had nearly as much cultural variety, we would be missing a piece of American history. Harlem was an important place to many people living now, they might not even be here! The Harlem Renaissance was a beautiful piece of history that I am glad happened.
