    ARTbreak : Film: Against the Odds: The Artists of the Harlem Renaissance

    The Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and 30s encompassed an extraordinary outburst of creativity by African American visual artists. Racial prejudice and segregation not only kept them out of mainstream museum and galleries but threatened the very core of their personal artistic expression. Rich archival footage, including newsreels and photographs, recall the vibrancy of Harlem in the roaring twenties and the many personalities that shaped the movement, such as William E. Harmon, W. E. B. DuBois, and Alain Locke.

    ARTbreak is a weekly program about art, artists and exhibitions. Donations welcome. Bring your brown bag lunch, coffee provided.
