The Harlem Renaissance was a cultural and artistic movement during the 1920s and 1930s. It was centered in Harlem, a neighborhood in New York City.  Black community leaders—educators, intellectuals, activists, and artists—were drawn to Harlem to work together, support each other, and use their talent, culture, and African heritage to help bring about change for Black people. Their work encouraged Black people to look to their culture and African heritage for self-esteem and identity during a time when Black culture and African heritage were portrayed negatively.  This activity book includes short biographies, illustrations, and activities related to Louis Armstrong, Countee Cullen, Aaron Douglas, Jessie Redmon Fauset, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and Alain Leroy Locke.
