Your #Panel61 by Breyell Price

The Great Migration has impacted many Americans in both the past and today, especially African-Americans. Relocating thousands of African Americans, the Great Migration encouraged the mold of the Harlem Renaissance, a cultural, social, and artistic explosion that took place in Harlem. My painting portrays an African American woman speaking out loud in an attempt to be heard by the White ear. Before and as the Harlem Renaissance was occurring, African Americans and other minorities struggled to take control of the representation of black culture and experience. As the Harlem Renaissance became more prominent, the amount of blacks that showcased their unrecognized talents increased. This allowed them to create both a piercing voice and contrasting image for an urban society. The painting I constructed demonstrates the small, yet relevant amount of unity that the Harlem Renaissance created between African Americans and Whites as their voices were lifted through their abilities.
