Renard Lecture: Harlem Renaissance

A retrospective on the Harlem Renaissance which will cover the growth of Harlem during the turn of the century. We will explore how the great migration of African Americans from the South and Caribbean affected the political, artistic and cultural landscape of Harlem making it the place to be in New York. We will discuss the political beginnings of the NAACP led by W.E.B. Du Bois, the poetry of Langston Hughes, and the art work of Aaron Douglass and other notable artists, musicians, and trailblazers of the time.

Charlese Randolph is the owner of Modern Moves (2008), and a dance and exercise fitness consultant. She teaches dance, exercise and fitness to students at Meals on Wheels of Rockland, Haverstraw Head Start, Smarty Pants Day Care, and middle schools throughout Rockland County.  She educates students on the mechanics of the body, and the history of dance styles including African, Modern and Ballet. She brings love for dance and theater history to adult students through classes on the Harlem Renaissance and Broadway Musicals at RCC Senior Institute and Learning Collaborative in Rockland County.
