MasterMiND - Theater of the Harlem Renaissance with Carl Cofield & Ty Jones
The Harlem Renaissance began in the 1910s and quickly became one of the most important social and cultural movements in the United States, resulting in an explosion of Black art, literature, poetry, music, and theatrical performance. During this period, history saw an evolution of Black Nationalism and expression, greatly influenced by Black performance. Associate Artistic Director of the Classical Theatre of Harlem and director of Miami New Drama’s One Night in Miami, Carl Cofield, and OBIE Award winning actor, Ty Jones, join us for a discussion of this turning point in American history and the development of theater in 20th century Harlem.
