Should the Harlem Renaissance Change Names?
Renaissance means rebirth. The Italian Renaissance was a rebirth of the ancient Roman art and culture. So Harlem Renaissance is implying there was a previous high point of art and culture in Harlem. When was that high point? If there was no previous high point, and just an explosion of art and culture during this 1920s time period then the name should be different. Harlem Movement, Harlem Revolution, Harlem whatever.
