Summary "In the 1920s, many African Americans left the South to escape racial violence. Some settled in New York City's Harlem neighborhood. Black artists, writers, and musicians in Harlem ushered in a cultural revolution called the Harlem Renaissance. The Harlem Renaissance explores this movement and its legacy. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index."-- Provided by publisher.
