"If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life." Marcus Garvey
The Harlem Renaissance was from 1920-1940.
Thousands of African Americans moved from the economically unstable South to the industrial North. There were many more job opportunities there that had been created by WW1.
The Harlem Renaissance was a cultural movement and sprang up as part of the "New Negro Movement" political movement in 1917.
Little by little many African Americans moved into New York's neighborhood of Harlem
Eventually Harlem became the political and social epicenter for African Americans!
During this period Harlem was a cultural canter drawing black writers, artists, musicians, photographers, poets and scholars which stirred the worlds of theater, literature and jazz.
Specifically jazz helped break down a number of social boundaries of the time period and it made black music and culture more attractive to white people
