Webinar Details

Primary Source logoThere is little question that the dynamic outpouring of Black arts and letters, known as the Harlem Renaissance, forever changed the course and shape of the modern world. Yet few have situated the renaissance within its larger context, when the “renaissance” was simply one part of a New Negro movement that spanned the globe. In this webinar we will recover the broader New Negro experience as social movements and popular cultures of Black literature, sport, music, protest, and public behavior stretched from New York to New Orleans, from Paris to the Philippines and beyond. It will become clear how the Harlem Renaissance was part of the New Negro Movement and also that the New Negro movement reached far beyond Harlem. This is a timely reconsideration of the Harlem Renaissance, as Black people are again central to the realms of popular culture, arts, and politics around the globe.
