History of US Pop Culture Harlem Renaissance o New products being launched “The New Negro, An Interpretation” o Edited by: Alain Locke o Talks about how African Americans are not exactly what you think of them; tries to prove to people that their opinions are wrong, and shows people how they actually are. “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” o If you were called an “Uncle Tom”, you are essentially being called a “sellout”. “The North, having been fed only on stereotypes, came to ignore the Negro in any intimate or critical way through deceptive influence.” o Quote by Alain Locke Reification- Making something real by imagining it, or talking about it. Headlines from a Vanity Fair magazine: o “Enter the New Negro, a distinctive type recently created by the coloured cabaret belt in New York.” o “Exit the crooked crooner of lullabyes, the cotton picker, the mammy singer, and the Darky Banjo player.” 3 Points: o Point #1- African Americans are not homogeneous, they are all individuals, but they are trying to pull together. o Point #2- The people who have studied ‘The Negro Race” had failed to recognize that all blacks are individuals. o Point #3- Education and culture are crucial for rehabilitating the race in world esteem for the loss of prestige that the problems with culture and the world have been responsible for. African Americans are trying to get enough access to mass media, so that all of their ideas can be shared. 1919- “The Red Summer” o 26 race riots in the summer of 1919(Both North and South)
