I, too, sing America.
I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.
I'll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody'll dare
Say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen,"
They'll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed--
I, too, am America. Video: "The Harlem Renaissance" from History.com On your notes:

1) Evidence of social/political/economic growth

2) Evidence of discrimination and inequality Reading for historical context:

As we read three selections from "How It Feels to be Colored Me" by Zora Neale Hurston, take notes to create dialogue journals on the CONTEXT of the Harlem Renaissance.

Look For:
- Lifestyle specific to the 1920's
- Attitudes or beliefs specific to the 1920's
- Evidence of "Growth" or "Repression" Quote (in context) Analysis "During this period, white people differed from colored to me only in that they rode through town and never lived there... they wanted to see me dance the parse-me-la, and gave me generously of their small silver for doing these things... The colored people gave no dimes." (young Zora's view of white people) Quote (in context) Analysis (Zora talks about her ancestors) Quote (in context) Analysis (Zora talks about race) "The terrible struggle that made me an American out of a potential slave said 'On the line!' The Reconstruction said 'Get set!' and the generation before said 'Go!' I am off to a flying start and I must not halt in the stretch to look behind and weep. Slavery is the price I paid for civilization, and the choice was not with me." "...I feel like a brown bag of miscellany propped against a wall. Against a wall in company with other bags, white, red and yellow. Pour out the contents, and there is discovered a jumble of small things priceless and worthless... In your hand is the brown bag. On the ground before you is the jumble it held -- so much like the jumble in the bags, could they be emptied, that all might be dumped in a single heap and the bags refilled without altering the content of any greatly. A bit of colored glass more or less would not matter." Work hard. Be nice. "I do my work!"

"I got you!" "I do my work well, on time!"

"I got you RIGHT NOW!" When you have 10 minutes to get work done, how many of those minutes do you spend actually working? Mon - The Harlem Renaissance
