Designed for teachers and community educators, this resource presents student-centered curricula for grades 6-12. Each of the nine modules uses critical inquiry approaches to encourage students’ examination of the materiality of different texts and media as the means for exploring and synthesizing content to arrive at their own new understandings of the Harlem Renaissance.

Teaching the Harlem Renaissance in the 21st Century accompanied the Wallach Art Gallery exhibition, Uptown Triennial 2020 (on view September 24, 2020–February 28, 2021). The resource is the result of a partnership with the Wallach Art Gallery, the Double Discovery Center, and Institute for Urban and Minority Education at Columbia University.
