The White Person’s Guide To The Harlem Renaissance

David Lally wrote this piece for the Harlem Renaissance Festival at The Metropolitan Playhouse (220 E 4th st, NYC)  Jan 17-30th.

What lurks above 125th Street?  Generations X, Y, and Z, take the A Train to Harlem and discover what happened during a time not too long ago and how its influences still resonate today.  From the creator of “Little Edie & The Marble Faun” (“an unexpectedly touching examination of memory and loss” — Backstage) and “The Real Housewives of the 19th Century” (“VERY FUNNY–thanks to the clever script and great cast with impeccable comedy timing.” — HI! Drama)  Here is a quick guide every white person (and other colors, too) needs to know about the Harlem Renaissance.
