This webpage is dedicated to the Harlem Renaissance Poetry Project! On this site, you'll find biographical information about Harlem Renaissance poets that our project team finds interesting and influential, as well as poems written by these poets during this important time period in African American history!

This project was developed for the Digital Humanities Coding and Digital Archives class at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg.

Our Research Question

During the Harlem Renaissance, a time of cultural revolution in African American history, how did black poets write, both individually and collectively? What do their writing styles tell us about the new freedom that the Harlem Renaissance gave to African American writers, as well as the African American community as a whole?

Key Poem Elements for Analysis:

We hope that, by looking at a cluster of individual poems by Harlem Renaissance poets, we can generalize our findings and discover patterns and trends for this time period.
