 Harlem flourished in the 1920s, energized by the Great Migration of African Americans from the South who were looking for jobs in New York City. The first generation of photographers, painters, and muralists tapped into new calls for expressing racial pride and optimism; the second worked through the Depression and World War II, carrying on this inspiration and deepening the depictions. This is the story of the art of the Harlem Renaissance, which is still influencing artists today.

As we embark on a journey through the art of the Harlem Renaissance, our virtual showcase will include:

A look at the diverse styles of artists working in Harlem from the 1920s to 1940s
An overview of two generations of Harlem Renaissance artists some well-known, others less familiar
An understanding of how contemporary African American artists stand on the shoulders of these breakthrough artists
