Description by OLDIES.com:

In the 1920s, African-American literature, art, music, dance, and social commentary flourished in Harlem, in uptown New York City. This cultural movement which redefined African-American expression, became known as the Harlem Renaissance. Music became the centerpiece that this movement was built around, launching an artistic awakening rather than a social revolt. Featuring commentary from historians and the performers themselves, this program traces the roots of the music, it's social impact on society and its eventual acceptance in mainstream culture. Classic performances from Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Nat King Cole are featured as well as 30 minutes of performance extras.
