Teach your readers the quintessential elements of a renaissance, through the details of this inspirational event. 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. Some historians argue the movement wasn't a true Renaissance, but rather represented a weakening of traditional African American culture. Regardless, this movement uplifted African American musicians, authors, actors, artists, and other individuals. 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, and will inspire your readers in profound ways.
