3D Presentation Activity
Characteristics- (1)Harlem became known as "the Black Mecca" and the capital of black America. (2) The Apollo Theatre helped blacks start musical careers and give them opportunities.
Significance- The Harlem Renaissance was successful in establishing black identity as an integral part of American history. The symbolism and actual effects of the event served as a big inspiration for blacks in future struggles for their rights, like the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. It reinforced the stand of the black community and demonstrated to the world and the black community itself, what capabilities they had in store, waiting to be unleashed. This led to a united cultural identity which served as a conscious awakening for a united race among the black community.
