Lecture and Tour
December 29th & 30th
At its height, the Harlem Renaissance movement in Black America was taking root through the nation's inter cities; Los Angeles was no exception. Spawning the rise and visibility of Black art, poetry, music and literature, this was a time of Black enlightenment in many voices. Although much has been said on this subject, little has been mentioned about its effects on and relations to the Black church during this same time. Just how much of an effect did this movement have on the church and, in turn, how much of it was inspired by the church?
This lecture and seminar will explore the Black religious scene on Los Angeles' Central Avenue during Central Avenue's Black cultural boom of the roaring 20's and 30's. A museum tour focusing on the Black Renaissance in Los Angeles will follow.
Cost for Lecture and Tour: $45.00.
