In the 1920s and 1930s, the soulful rhythms of blues and jazz signaled an explosion of African American creativity. During this period, known as the Harlem Renaissance, musicians, dancers, visual artists, writers, and scholars sought to define their African heritage in American culture. In this series, Dr. Emily Seelbinder explores the origins of the Harlem Renaissance and examines with participants some of the art, music, and literature that came out of that period.
