315.010: The Harlem Renaissance
Finnie Coleman, firstname.lastname@example.org
This course is an introduction to the art, literature, and music of the Harlem Renaissance. The Harlem Renaissance was one of the most fecund periods in all American literature and a watershed moment in the development of African American cultural history. Before delving into the literature, music, and art of the Harlem Renaissance we will review African American cultural history with an eye toward better understanding Black identity development and what it meant to be a Black American on the eve of the Harlem Renaissance. With the proper context established, we will read the works of the major writers from the period, discuss the visual arts, and familiarize ourselves with the genesis of Jazz and Blues music. We will close the course with a look at how the Harlem Renaissance set the stage for the Black Arts Movement and the rise of Hip Hop Culture in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
