The Harlem Renaissance

III. Effects of the Harlem Renaissance on Jazz


A. Spotlight on Sophistication

   

As the New York elite began attending jazz clubs, jazz became viewed as a sophisticated art form. 


B. National Exposure

   

The market for jazz was stimulated, both locally and nationally through radio broadcasts.  


C. One Step Closer to Integration

   

The Harlem Renaissance brought literary, dramatic, artistic, and musical works to the attention of more whites. A white market developed for these products - including jazz - during the Harlem Renaissance. 


D. Appreciation and Understanding

   

The Harlem Renaissance brought attention to literary and artistic works by African Americans. Jazz was an important ingredient in a developing appreciation of the artistic talent of African Americans.
