During the Harlem Renaissance we learned about all types of great people and things like artwork. Some of the people we learned about were W.E.B DuBois and Marcus Garvey. These two people were huge figures in the African American community. Al tough they were both for African Americans rights, one wanted to stand up against white people and the other wanted to get over it and go back to Africa. Artwork, writing, and music became a big contribution to the Harlem Renaissance era. Artwork made a big impression in society during this time. Writing inspired people to follow and give up on their dreams. Music contributed to their good times where they had fun. Over all the Harlem Renaissance was a great time period and era.
