Poetry of the Harlem Renaissance: Exhibit
Start Date: 4/9/2018 All Day
End Date: 4/19/2018

Event Description:
As Harlem transformed into a hub for African Americans in the early 1900s, African American writers began to thrive in the new, intellectually charged atmosphere. By the 1920s, many works were receiving critical praise in mainstream literary circles and popular acclaim among both black and white audiences. Originally dubbed the New Negro Movement, this outpouring of literature came to be known as the Harlem Renaissance. While some black poets continued to write primarily in traditional English literary forms, others explored black vernacular speech and lyrical forms while creating works that identified with the African American masses. The politics and ideals born from this era would serve as inspirations to African American artists for years to come and would also help to lay the foundation of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.
