This renaissance was seen almost as a revolution. It was tearing traditions and expressing themselves in various of ways, the way they've needed to. They gained a voice that they've never had, and Americans were listening.
Through out Harlem, the music style of jazz exploded as popular entertainment. It brought out the African-American culture along with the music breaking traditions and creating new ones. This from of music soon expanded to the white middle class and was incorporated in the culture.
The forms in which African Americans conveyed their stories and culture translated what was being held inside their minds. They would create worlds and soon american culture would also take part in these expressive forms.
As African Americans moved to the north, the were still facing problems such as unemployment and prejudice. Fortunately, with their expressiveness in their musics, arts, and writings, white Americans started taking interest. It eventually found its way into american culture.
All the artists and musicians were able to impact American culture because these pieces of art were moments that changed the face of the African-Americans. They were breaking away from the norms and having a fresh start and outlook on life, influencing white culture alongside it.
this is the rubric for this harlem renaissance project. I gave myself three 4's and two 5's.
