Abstract

The article outlines the use of contemporary hip-hop lyrics to access the literature of the Harlem Renaissance. Lassiter’s essay outlines a strategy for tracing the progression and evolution of African American political and social resistance in literature and music. Furthermore, it offers instructors an opportunity to introduce students to forgotten or overlooked texts of the Harlem Renaissance by exploring the connection between political/social protest and artistic expression.
