Harlem Renaissance 100 Celebration

About the Event

“Through the Harlem Renaissance, African American intellectuals, artists and professionals in other fields profoundly shaped not only the culture of black America, but that of the broader society in ways that continue to reverberate in our own era. Teachers College’s role as an institution that was home, at various points, to many of these important figures is an enormously rich but often overlooked part of its history. We want to shine a spotlight on that period, celebrate its enduring legacy for the College, New York City and the world, and ensure that these narratives have a rightfully prominent place in the ongoing story of Teachers College.” —Erica N. Walker, Clifford Brewster Upton Professor of Mathematical Education; Director, Institute for Urban and Minority Education
