Take the "A" Train to the Savoy, or Call Yourself a Cab, Calloway!
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic, Standards-based Unit on The Harlem Renaissanceà or Re-Born to be Wild The Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s changed the expression of black culture in America; this expression was celebrated through visual arts, music, dance, and theatre. Artists were looking for new language to define their social protest. The art of the day reflected social and political issues of the time as artists portrayed the lives and struggles of black Americans. Our students' experiences in celebrating this uniquely American culture will enable them to make connections to today's artistic culture. Students will celebrate the Harlem Renaissance through various forms of artistic expression.
