Tuesday, February 19
Theatre: Harlem on Broadway
Guerrieri Center, Wicomico Room, 7 p.m.
Sponsored by the SU NAACP. The Harlem Renaissance was a cultural and intellectual movement in the 1920s and 30s. Centered in Harlem, but affecting areas all over the world, the movement included literature, drama, music, visual art and dance in addition to sociology, historiography and philosophy. The play takes place in an upscale, 1930s Harlem club and shows how the Harlem Renaissance thrived during the times of segregation. After dark, when the music and other arts were performed, the whole world seemed to cross the color lines and enjoy itself. Admission is free and the public is invited. For more information visit
