The Harlem Renaissance was a very important period for African American cultural as we know it today. Our Harlem Roots history lesson plans will introduce students to the many people, places and events which help to shape this time period. Students will learn about the sacrifices and contributions of Langston Hughes, Mom’s Mabley, Paul Robeson and Marian Anderson. They will also learn about important events and places like the Savoy Ballroom, the Cotton, and the Apollo Theater.
