At the height of the movement, Harlem was the epicenter of American culture. The neighborhood bustled with African American-owned and run publishing houses and newspapers, music companies, playhouses, nightclubs, and cabarets. The literature, music, and fashion they created defined culture and “cool” for blacks and white alike, in America and around the world.
Afro Americans should be confident. Despite all they have faced before, they have done great things and will still do great things. I call for the restoration of the Harlem Renaissance.
