A three-week school teacher institute for thirty participants on the social, cultural and political dynamics encompassing African-American communities in the interwar period.

"The New Negro Renaissance in America" aims to introduce junior and senior high school teachers of various disciplines to interdisciplinary approaches to an important era in African American social, cultural, and political history: The New Negro Renaissance of the 1920s and 1920s, sometimes referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. The primary goal of the institute is to work with teachers to show how, through the study of the social, cultural, political, and literary history of a major epoch in African American life, they can reconfigure aspects of teaching their particular disciplines while broadening students' understanding of the rich complexity of both the United States as a whole and of the specific disciplines they are taught.
