The Roaring Twenties

Harlem: City of Dreams – Harlem in the 1920s The premise of this lecture holds that Harlem was a city of dreams: realized, defeated, and deferred. Cheryl A. Wall, Department of History, Rutgers University, will analyze representations of Harlem by poets and fiction writers, painters and photographers, dramatists and musicians. These analyses will give the audience access both to the dreams and the material realities that inspired and thwarted them.

This lecture is being presented in memory of Anne and Frank Ruggieri, by Gerry Ruggieri DiPersia.

This lecture is part of the series The Roaring Twenties presented by Camden County College. All lectures will take place on Wednesdays at 7pm at Madison Connector 105 on Camden County College’s Blackwood Campus.
