Product Description
Allow your students to read the poem believed to have initiated the Harlem Renaissance!

This lesson features two poems written by Claude McKay, an early Harlem Renaissance writer.

The two poems are “If We Must Die,” and “America.” Students will read and discuss the poems at length in class.

Theme is reviewed in regards to how it is developed and what themes are present in McKay’s poetry.

Lastly, students create a collage based on the four themes they must write for the ideas and topics McKay explores in his poetry.

Students really enjoy creating the collage, as they love scavenging for images relating to the ideas that fueled African Americans to rally for their rights.

A handout is provided as well as an answer key.
