Studying the Harlem Renaissance

Studying the Harlem Renaissance

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Ms. Geyer’s language arts students are currently studying African American poets in honor of Black History Month. “There is a great importance in exposing our students to literature from the Harlem Renaissance and other very important contributors to the literary canon,” says Ms. Geyer. This week her classes are studying Langston Hughes with students conducting research and sharing his poetry.   Next week they will be studying Maya Angelou, which will include videos of this icon of literature reciting her own poetry.  The final week of February will be a medley that will include Lucille Clifton, Robert Hayden, Claude McKay, Alice Walker and James Weldon Johnson. 
 
Studies will culminate with a trip to the Mayo Theater in Morristown where students will hear the story of Harriett Tubman who freed herself and hundreds of her people from the bonds of slavery.
