Beginning in the 1930s, Black Chicago experienced a cultural renaissance that lasted into the 1950s and rivaled the cultural outpouring of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s. Darlene Clark Hine, Professor of African American Studies at Northwestern University, discusses the forces that distinguished the Black Chicago Renaissance from the Harlem Renaissance and places the development of black culture in a national and international context. Sponsored by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanites at Northwestern University.
Part of the 11 Months of African American History series.
