SORT BY Relevancy
During the first half of the 20th century, the largest internal population shift in U.S. history took place. Starting about 1910, through the Great Migration over five million African Americans made choices and "voted with their feet" by moving from the South to northern cities, the West and Midwest. In the 1920s, the concentration of blacks in New York led to the cultural movement known as the Harlem Renaissance, whose influence reached nationwide. From A. Philip Randolph to Marcus Garvey, sociopolitical designs for self-determination became the model that pushed towards sociopoliticah shifts within the American construct.
How did these extraordinary people develop and sustain such constructs? Are they relevant during current times? Join us as we talk about how the Harlem Renaissance shaped identity for black American and the nation.

The first waive of Caribbean immigrants took place during the Portugese and Spanish Caribbean's planotractic design that supported the growth of the British and Dutch colony's slave system. While Caribbean slavery started 150 years prior to the British colonies', it was the Caribbean that was the "seasoning" process for middle-America's human trafficking. While the slavocratic sucess can be observed through the development of Amercian construction, there were components of resistance that shifted the sociopolitcal frameworks of the Caribbean design.
The second waive took place when Haiti (1804) and Jamaica (1834), provided a new waive of Caribbeans immigrants. According to Caribbean lineage socio-anthropologist, WEB DuBois, in his book, The Souls of Black Folk (1903), he indicated that the "free northern Negro" should consider the views of the "West Indian mulattos". Integrating into black American construct, Caribbean Americans took their place into American black history. During the early 20th century, with the push-pull immigrant principal that brought "West Indians" to New York, the essence of the Harlem Renaissance was within the Caribbean immigrant. Join us as we talk about the Caribbean Lens within the Harlem Renaissance.
The Harlem Renaissance was not only a cultural phenomenon, in "...the early portion of the 20th century, " it was also the nexus for a new form of sociopolitical frameworks. Its distinctions evolved from southern black migrantion, the intelligentia of the DuBoisan era, and the push-pull formation of Caribbean immigrants. It was successful in that it brought the Black experience clearly within the corpus of American cultural history.
On a sociological level, the legacy of the Harlem Renaissance redefined how America and the world, viewed African–Americans. This new identity led to a greater social consciousness, and African–Americans became players on the world stage, expanding intellectual and social contacts internationally.
Through the Harlem Renaissance encouraged the new appreciation of folk roots and culture. For instance, folk materials and spirituals provided a rich source for the artistic and intellectual imagination, which freed Blacks from the establishment of past condition. Through sharing in these cultural experiences, a consciousness sprung forth in the form of a united racial identity. Join us as we talk about the layers shaped the black socipolitical frameworks.

Grand Gesture Screening Invitation http://t.co/PBpaWKSV7q
When Dr. Woodson Carter designed "Negro History Week", in 1926, the Harlem Renaissance was well into its maturity. From West Indian sociopolitical influences such as Claude MacKay to the intellecturalism of multiple artforms, Harlem was and still is the epicenter of African diaspora life. By the 1920's, writers and artists lived in Harlem as they brought a vibrant, creative community that found its voice into what came to be the “Harlem Renaissance.”
Several factors accounted for the birth of the movement and propelled it forward. By 1920 the once white ethnic neighborhood of Harlem in upper Manhattan overflowed with recent African-American migrants from the South and Caribbean immigrants. Black soldiers returning from World War I shared a new sense of pride, militancy, and entitlement. Social movements of WEB DuBois and Marcus Garvey established levels of political and economic sustainability that can still be felt throughout Harlem. And now The Nuevo Harlem Renaissance steps into the next 100 years of socioeconomic,and cultural growth.
