Product Description
I wanted my students to understand better the significance of places in Harlem during the Harlem Renaissance, so after a bunch of research I created this "Tourist Guide" based on the area from 1929. It is as true to character as I could find on places of entertainment (i.e. The Cotton Club) and places of cultural significance (i.e. William Johnson's art studio). I was surprised to learn how counter-culture some of the places actually were and wrote it from the standpoint of giving warning of all the dangers and norm-breaking that a student might find there, if segregation was present, descriptions, as well as who they might see performing at certain clubs (again, based on research). There are 13 places listed on two pages. It can be used on it's own as an informative piece, part of another lesson, or with my "An Evening in Harlem: Postcard Home" lesson available or all included in a bundle.
