Abstract:

"During the Harlem Renaissance, African American culture blossomed thanks in part to the Great Migration, an increase in African Americans receiving formal educations, and national organizations being created to champion African Americans' rights. This movement uplifted African American musicians, authors, actors, artists, and more. Without this turning point, it is possible that African American culture might not have had an opportunity to flourish until much later. This movement reached well beyond Harlem and has influenced the modern American literary and artistic culture"--
