Excellent presentation...could do this in a 3 or 4 part series - so much information about women during the Harlem Renaissance Era that has been lost but so critical as we hopefully attempt to rewrite US history truthfully!!
The Women of the Harlem Renaissance with Dr. Maria Seger brilliantly explores The Great Migration and how this passage feeds into the New Negro Movement and the New Womens Movement. Influential Black Women, including Bessie Smith and Nella Larsen, are chronicled for their artistic contributions to racial injustice, sexuality, and poverty as groundbreaking fiction writers, poets, sculptors, and musicians.
Dr. Seger presented an excellent introductory overview of the role and limits of women in the arts in the Harlem Renaissance. She knew her subject manner and covered the topic in an engaging manner.
Very good overview of a lot of information. Clear and well-organized presentation
The topic is interesting and compelling....however the speaker is not. ‚ÄúThe commodification of Negro aesthetics ‚Äú (from the lecture) this language is not geared for your layman wanting to learn more. I encourage Maria to listen back to the lectures (I get this sounds petty) the flagrant use of UM and UH is overwhelming and distracting. I would not listen to this speaker again.
