All Day Faces of the Harlem Renaissance: Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
During the early 20th century, African American poets, musicians, actors, artists and intellectuals moved to Harlem in New York City and brought new ideas that shifted the culture forever. From approximately 1918 to the mid 1930s, talent began to overflow within this newfound culture of the black community in Harlem, as prominent figures - Langston Hughes, Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday, to name a few - pushed art to its limit as a form of expression and representation.
The portraits and images displayed in this exhibit are some of the famous African Americans who helped shape the influential movement known as the Harlem Renaissance.

All Day Poetry of the Harlem Renaissance: Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
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.

9:30 AM - 10:30 AM The Lost Zoo by Countee Cullen: Book Talk
The Lost Zoo is a compilation of poems that explains why animals such as the Wakeupworld, the Squilililigee, the Sleepamitemore, and the Treasuretit did not get onto Noah's Ark, and are therefore not seen in any zoo today.
Countee Cullen was one of the most representative voices of the Harlem Renaissance. His life story is essentially a tale of youthful exuberance and talent of a star that flashed across the African American firmament and then sank toward the horizon. The Lost Zoo was a personal work for Cullen, dedicated to his own cat, with greater lessons including empathy toward animals, the importance of teaching moral lessons to children, and the great principles that we all have something to learn from someone else - whether creature or man.
