Harlem Renaissance Teacher Resources
The Harlem neighborhood of New York City was the place to be in the 1920’s. It was the epicenter, ground zero of an explosion of Black culture, of social movements, of art, of literature, of jazz. But why there, why then, and who exactly was involved? Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Countee Cullen, Augusta Savage, Duke Ellington, and Billie Holiday are among the writers and artists featured in our language arts and social studies resources.
Whether your study of The Harlem Renaissance is included in a unit about 20th century United States history, African-American history, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Migration, and/or the origins of the Civil Rights Movement, you’ll find what you need in Lesson Planet’s collection of materials.
