Harlem Renaissance

To me, it sounds like the black community handled themselves with great dignity during the Harlem Renaissance. They firmly insisted on being accepted as part of American society, but they don't sound as if they exuded the air of arrogant superiority as the white community did. Instead, they fought racism and prejudice by gaining education and becoming productive and innovative members of society. Instead of being upset, angry, or bitter about their situation, the black community came together in a celbration of their identity and formed a strong collective voice that could not be ignored.
