The Harlem Rennaissance

This storyboard does not have a description.
In 1900 my brother John and I wrote a song titled "Lift Every Voice and Sing"
The song later became the official anthem for the National Association for the Advancement
of Colored People (NAACP). I later became one of the leaders of the association.
During the time that I was involved with the NAACP I also became known as one of the leading figures in the creation and development of the Harlem Renaissance.
For the next prominent figure in the Rennaissance, we have the lovely Zora Neale Hurston.
I moved to New York to study anthropology, but I felt passionate for my race and culture so I contributed to the black movement with my art.
She recorded folk song and folk tales and was also a writer. Her most famous novel is, "Their Eyes Were Watching God."
Her novel "Their Eyes Were Watching God," was important to the literature in the Rennaissance because her use of African American Dialect influenced other writers to embrace their speech and use it in their writing.
The Harlem Renaissance is the most important event in the development in American Culture because the writers and musicians who were involved brought attention to African American art forms.
It also helped other people to see the struggles blacks faced through their writing. It spread awareness for the black community and also hope for African American progression in American society.
Thank you for your time, that will be all!
