The Harlem Renaissance was an unprecedented blossoming of African American music, artistic expression, race pride, and Pan-Africanism in the 1920s and 1930s. However, Black musicians and other performers built strong networks, toured internationally, and enjoyed successful careers as early as 1800. The nineteenth century reveals new ways to understand the diversity of the African American experience through the world of music and performance. Artists of this challenging yet hopeful period laid the cultural and social groundwork for later generations of Ragtime, Blues and Jazz artists. This course gives an overview of the beginnings of African American popular music and entertainment. Lectures and coursework will focus on popular genres of performance, African American women performers, economic and educational aims, and Black performers’ international identities. This course captures an exciting but overlooked period of Black history.
