Concept background
Harlem Renaissance: Black Identity in Visual Arts is a book based on an essay about the Harlem Renaissance, a cultural and intellectual movement that flourished primarily in the 1920s in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City. Also known as the "New Negro Movement," it was a pivotal period of African American artistic and literary expression.

Prominent figures of the Harlem Renaissance included writers such as Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston, musicians like Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong, and visual artists like Aaron Douglas. These works reflect the diverse experiences of African Americans and address issues of racial inequality and social justice. This book depicts how these experiences were expressed through arts forms, specifically visual.
