Black History Month 2015 – The Harlem Renaissance – Josephine Baker

 

When I was doing the Black History posts before, I usually had a particular individual that I focused on. This time I was so fascinated by the back story of the whole Harlem Renaissance that I felt I had to include it in the total series. Today I am going to start looking at the notable individuals of the era.  The first individuals I wanted to focus on I alluded to in the prior entry about music and fashion.  For this year I originally intended to do multiple eras of Black arts, but with the myriad of talent from the Harlem Renaissance I may not get to the others!

To start off this sub-series I would like to look at the amazing Josephine Baker.  I of course include a link to a video of the famous Banana Dance at the end!  Read the full post on my Blogger. Thanks for reading!
