After the race riots of 1919 and the Northern migration of African Americans, the Harlem neighborhood of New York City experienced a population boom and was the birthplace of what became known as the Golden Age of African American culture. Writers, musicians and artists worked across disciplines creating art that defied stereotypes. With European, African and Egyptian influences, a new modern visual language was developed that impacted generations to follow. In this presentation, we will explore the visual art of the Harlem Renaissance and the legacy it created.
