What you'll learn in this museum class:

When the philosopher Alain Leroy Locke edited the Harlem issue of the Survey Graphic that appeared on March 1, 1925, he infused the literary awakening of the 1920s now called the Harlem Renaissance with a philosophy of emancipation that was a quiet revolution in thinking about what it meant to be "Aframerican," as he put it.  This quiet revolution would not be achieved through politics or religion, but through a philosophy, that art embodied our ability to change, to grow, and to regenerate ourselves through art and become a new people. In an opening presentation based on his Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning biography, The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke, historian Jeffrey C. Stewart will explain this philosophy and show how Locke put it into practice, followed by a conversation with Harlem style intellectual Lana Turner.
