Description: 2020 is the year we celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance. A year celebrating African American innovation and creativity. Young artists will work with scenes and choreo-poems written by Langston Hughes to develop acting techniques and explore current cultural connections in the material.

Students who exhibit superb virtual attendance and dedication to the work will be invited to participate in a Short Film Culminating Production. Students who are local residents will receive a scheduled film day in November so that we can have a professional recording in costuming of the work the students build over the course of the session at Karamu House under social distancing restrictions. 

You will receive orientation information upon sign up to ask questions and receive film details.


Materials Included: Each student will receive a supply kit via USPS mail, which includes writing utensils, highlighter, notebook and guide.
