Harlem Renaissance Compared to Today: Generation Z/ Boomlets



“Harlem was made known as the scene of laughter, singing,
dancing……Writers flocked there; many came from afar,
and depicted it in many ways and in many languages.
They still come; the Harlem of story and song still fascinates them.”

-James Weldon Johnson’s 1933 description of the Harlem Renaissance:

Background:
The word Renaissance, means “rebirth” or awakening, a time where art and individuality foolish. During the years 1919 to 1934 Harlem, New York became a haven for African Americans, and the backdrop for the flowering of so many outstanding authors, poets, dramatists, artists, and musicians in a short span of time. Harlem became the center ; the hub from which the works flowed. There was a desire on the part of these artists to share their life stories from their African roots to their lives in the South and in the North. At a time when racism and social political injustices were part of the fabric of American society, these artists through their work expressed a strong cultural pride and a burning desire for political and social equality. The literature, art, and music of the period portray the despair of generations, of unfilled promises, as well as the dream of a new society based on equality of opportunity.
