“Celebrating the Harlem Renaissance”
The Harlem Renaissance was the name given to the cultural, social, and artistic explosion that took place in Harlem during the 1920’s. During this time period, Harlem was a cultural center drawing black writers, artists, musicians, photographers, poets, and scholars. The MAAHF presents an evening celebrating the Harlem Renaissance giving patrons an opportunity to express their nostalgic creativity.
In addition to an elegant dinner buffet, jazz and dancing, the patrons will be able to interact and shop among vendors displaying artistic wares. The vendors remind us of the key components of the Harlem Renaissance.
Dress to impress and celebrate this period!
