The Harlem Renaissance was the development of the Harlem neighborhood in New York City as a black cultural mecca in the early 20th Century and the subsequent social and artistic explosion that resulted. Lasting roughly from the 1910s through the mid-1930s, the period is considered a golden age in African American culture, manifesting in literature, music, stage performance and art.

Yes, the theme is Flappers and Dappers!!!We are asking guests to arrive in fringe, feathers and fedoras (if you choose) to make it a festive evening flashing back to the days of Langston Hughes and Duke Ellington. It will be an honor to have you participate in such a milestone event!!!
