The Harlem Renaissance

By: Garrett Ingold


The Harlem Renaissance was the name given to the cultural, social, and artistic explosion that took place in Harlem between the end of World War I and the middle of the 1930’s. During this period Harlem was a cultural center, drawing black writers, artists, musicians, photographers, poets, and scholars. Many had come from the south fleeing its oppressive caste system in order to find a place where they could freely express their talents.

Langston Hughes A Dream Deferred by Garrett Ingold


When your own dreams are deferred you must not let it die, but hold on tight to it so that it does not fade away. If we let our dreams die then we are left with nothing. Therefore we must clutch tightly to our dreams and keep them in your grasp.
