The Harlem Renaissance Births a Black Culture

After viewing our curriculum units, please take a few minutes to help us understand how the units, which were created by public school teachers, may be useful to others.
What richer cultural phenomenon than the Harlem Renaissance, with its surfeit of art, literature, music, dance, politics and business, is there for this type of unit infused with art activities? At the same time, studying the Renaissance allows our large Black population the opportunity to immerse itself in a cultural identity through the humanities that is the cornerstone of Black culture in this country. When I surveyed the students in my classes, only a tiny percentage had ever heard of the Harlem Renaissance, and none of them really knew what it was.
