Peace Interlude: Harlem 100

Peace Center Campus

Step back and take a deep look at the artistic and creative energy that made Harlem world-renowned. From the words of Langston Hughes to the sweet melodies of Billie Holiday, blossoming creative arts and spirited nightlife made Harlem the nexus of African-American cultural identity. This Interlude will give you a snapshot into the unparalleled artistic and intellectual development of the Harlem Renaissance, featuring the music of Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, and Bessie Smith. Raise a glass and celebrate the landmark 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance!
