This product is a Google form and doc linked to two interactive galleries: African American Achievers in the 1920's and Key Figures of the Harlem Renaissance.
The contributions of various racial groups have enriched American history for centuries. In the 1920's, many African Americans, men and women alike, accomplished things that their grandparents could only have dreamed about.
The Harlem Renaissance was an African American cultural movement of the 1920's. Many of the writers, musicians, and artists associated with the movement lived in Harlem, a center of African American life in New York City.
