Harlem Renaissance in Florida

Teacher institutes, Chautauqua public programming, and an issue of FORUM magazine on the topic of the Harlem Renaissance and its impact on Florida, American, and African-American culture.

The seminars, programs and publication in this proposal explore the historic significance and cultural contributions of the writers, artists and musicians of the Harlem Renaissance, in particular, Florida's Zora Neale Hurston, James Weldon Johnson and Augusta Savage. These programs and the publication will be designed to provide teachers and the general public with the opportunity to examine and analyze the movement's multidisciplinary work, its historical context and significance, and its impact on Florida culture, American culture and African-American culture.
