How does the Harlem Renaissance impact you?
Since the Harlem Renaissance was an African-American cultural program, the people that were involved in it were mostly African-Americans.
How did the Harlem Renaissance impact the people of the 1920s?
The Harlem Renaissance was vibrant during the 1940s, 50s and early 60s. However, during the late 1960s, things started changing drastically. There was a high crime rate and people got into things like drugs. Lots of people that had lived in NewYork, were either dead or had to move because of the crime. That's why the Harlem Renaissance got torn apart after the late 1960s.
If we didn't have the Harlem Renaissance, people would not be able to come to America safely.
People can get a job for a living without being criticized for their culture.
What is the Harlem Renaissance about?
The Harlem Renaissance impacted the people by spreading the word about how important their culture really is. It impacted them by trying to change the view point of Americans on how they treat other people that are not 100% American.
