This compelling sculpture, titled 'Lift Every Voice and Sing,' was designed by Harlem Renaissance artist Augusta Savage for the 1939 World's Fair. It stood 16 feet tall. A temporary installation, it was unfortunately destroyed after the close of the fair.
A map of the Harlem Renaissance. I'm starting to love these cultural maps.

A 102-years-old Hollywood and Harlem Renaissance dancer, Alice Barker, sees herself dance, for the first time, thanks to an ipad and the internet. She danced in movies, commercials and tv shows. Her work was finally located, after a typographical error was corrected. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3050017/102-year-old-woman-chorus-line-dancer-Frank-Sinatra-Gene-Kelly-sees-film-time.html
