Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s was the scene of a passionate outburst of creativity by African-American visual artists. This fascinating documentary tells how black artists triumphed over the prejudice and segregation that kept their work out of mainstream galleries and exhibitions and recalls the vibrancy of Harlem in the roaring twenties.  Dr. Michael R. Williams, Director, Black Studies Program at Cleveland State University leads a post-viewing discussion.  Directed by Amber Edwards (1993/60min)
