Focus on the Harlem Renaissance

The Harlem Renaissance combined art and social change in the early 1900s. Black leaders and artists celebrated their cultural roots and demanded equitable treatment. Readers get a firsthand look at history though photos from the era. Uncover the lasting impact of the Harlem Renaissance and why many say that we are living in a Black Renaissance.
Read Woke™ Books are created in partnership with Cicely Lewis, the Read Woke librarian. Inspired by a belief that knowledge is power, Read Woke Books seek to amplify the voices of people of the global majority (people who are of African, Arab, Asian, and Latin American descent and identify as not white), provide information about groups that have been disenfranchised, share perspectives of people who have been underrepresented or oppressed, challenge social norms and disrupt the status quo, and encourage readers to take action in their community.
