The Harlem Renaissance originally called the New Negro
Movement that cultivated a new black culture in the
1920's and 1930's .
This was also part of the Great Migration.

drawing black writers, artistic, musicians,
photographers, poets, and scholars.
The birth of Jazz is considered a separate movement
- according to Alain Lock, the Harlem Renaissance transformed
" social dissimulation to race pride."
The Renaissance had little impact on breaking down the rigid
barriers of Jim Crow that separated the races.
Racial attitudes among young whites, it's
greater impact was to reinforcer race
pride among blacks.
Writers during this period were Zora Neale Hurston,
Claude McKay, Jean Toomer, Rudolf Fisher, Wallace Thurman,
and Nella Larsen.
Some of Jean Toomer poems, stories, and sketches about black
life in rural Georgia and the urban North, were published in 1923.
The magazine Fire, had an impact on the literacy
production because it represented the efforts of
younger African American writers.
Writers, actors, artist, and musicians glorified African American
tradition, and at the same time created new ones.
Harlem brought great work that had been lost or never produced
The results were incredible.
The impact of all African culture was equally strong. This was the
first time that white American could not look away.
All African American voices could be heard through
their work which was not possible before this period.
