Our NYC campus is bringing the study of the Harlem Renaissance to life! Students headed uptown to Harlem to put feet down on the ground and walk the path of one of the greatest literary, intellectual, and cultural movements in American history.
To prepare, students researched landmarks within Harlem and their importance to the Harlem Renaissance. Wish you could go with them? This free guided tour is a great place to start.
Students read Langston Hughes’ poem “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” and then viewed the installation of the work on the floor of the Schomburg Center. To complete the learning experience, students analyzed “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” together while sharing a meal in Harlem.
This is Impact Learning.
