    If you did not know, now you know . . .

    This video documentary take a comprehensive look at the Harlem Renaissance from a musical perspective. There are a host of musicians that blossomed during this time frame, and they are featured in this video. I used this in the classroom with my high school students to give them a better understanding of the struggles of African-American musicians during this time, and how it related to the years of Prohibition, the "Roaring Twenties," and more importantly, the struggles that ensued once The Great Depression came about. I love it, and my students enjoyed it!
