The Harlem Renaissance
The Harlem Renaissance was the name given to the cultural, social and artistic explosion that took place in Harlem between the end of World War I and the middle of the 1930’s. During this time, Harlem was a cultural center, drawing black writers, artists, musicians, photographers, poets, and scholars. A special event of the Beaufort Arts Council, focused on The Harlem Renaissance, will be held January 30 from 7PM to 11PM at Tabby Place. This event recognizes the unique cultural contributions of African-Americans and the period known as the Harlem Renaissance. All proceeds will benefit the Beaufort Arts Council’s programs and services.
