  • Jacobe Lawrence was an African American Painter, His influence were the shapes and colors of HarlemFamous for his migration seriesConcentrated on depicting African American struggle for freedom and justice in America from the civil war through the civil rights movements
  • During World War I began the great Migration Ofsouthern blacks to the north Thousands of blacks left the South in response to promises of a better life and opportunities in the North. This painting is the first one that Jacob Lawrence made about migration. It shows a crowd of migrants about to embark on journeys to three big cities. Lawrence painted the migrants without facial features. Using a limited palette, Lawrence defined their clothing, hats, and luggage as silhouetted shapes, enhancing a sense of collective action as the crowd surges toward the station.
  • The southern blacks found discrimination in the North although it was much different from that which they had known in the South. Black migrants were often segregated into the most dilapidated sections of the city, forced to pay high prices for inferior housing, and discriminated against in the workplace.
  • Lawrence depicted a city street full of activity. Lawrence used repetition and patterns to create the rhythm of this city scene. Unlike earlier works, in which people and places are portrayed in flat color, in this painting, Lawrence created depth through the use of shadow.
  • Romare BeardenThrough is work he told many captivating and inspiring stories to draw attention to social realism and to celebrate the African-American experience. He worked mainly in collage His work was created by gluing fragments of paper, fabric, scraps, photographs, drawings, and images in magazines and newspapers to a flat surface. In addition, he used watercolors, oil paints, and inks to make his collages.
  • At this time his paintings were often of scenes in the American South, and his style was strongly influenced by the Mexican muralists
  • Bearden uses extreme contrasts and a wide Varity of textures ranging from wood like to flat colors. The man in the middle is depicted with the impression of poverty and is most like a farm laborer. The use of contrast in his face relays the since of sadness.
  • The layered, fragmented form allowed him to freely combine ideas, shapes, colors, and cultural references in a way that was both radically modern, and accessible.
  • The Jazz AgeLouis Armstrong, Billie holiday, Dizzy Gillespie Jazz, a result of the Harlem Renaissance, originated from the musical minds of American Blacks. These include traits that survived from West African music black folk music forms developed in the New World…Jazz was a great inspiration to many of the African American Artist of the Harlem renaissance
