The Harlem Renaissance

presented by Rena Tobey

Monday, February 28, 2022, 6:30 - 7:30 PM *ONLINE*



Harlem flourished in the 1920s, energized by the Great Migration of African Americans from the South who were looking for jobs in New York City.

The first generation of photographers, painters, and muralists tapped into new calls for expressing racial pride and optimism; the second worked through the Depression and World War II, carrying on this inspiration and deepening the depictions.

This is the story of the art of the Harlem Renaissance, which is still influencing artists today.

As we embark on a journey through the art of the Harlem Renaissance, which celebrated Harlem and its people through a flowering of creative inspiration, our virtual showcase will include: About the Presenter: Rena "has a PhD in Human and Organizational Studies, with 14 years experience as an organizational coach, trainer, and consultant. Recently, Rena completed her MA, art history program at Hunter College, with a thesis on Elizabeth Okie Paxton and her provocative 1910 painting The Breakfast Tray."
