Dr. Richard A. Long speaks about the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s, which has been the subject of much discussion and reflection over the past three decades. One of the most important aspects of the Harlem Renaissance was the connection to Paris, France. Many of its prominent figures, including Alain Locke, Langston Hughes, and Claude McKay were connected to Paris in various ways. Also significant is the impact of jazz, as exemplified by the music of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. The personality of Josephine Baker, whose centenary has just been observed, is another major element in the Harlem-Paris axis. Dr. Long considers all of these factors as well as the presence of the visual arts in the equation.
