The Facts

The Harlem Renaissance was a literary, artistic, and intellectual movement that brought a new black cultural identity. Harlem became the center of a “spiritual coming of age” in which Locke’s “New Negro” transformed “social disillusionment to race pride.” The publishing industry, fueled by whites’ fascination with the world of Harlem, was found and published black writers. The Harlem Renaissance influenced future generations of black writers.
