This is a picture of the Cotton Club. The Cotton Club was a jazz nightclub located in Harleb, New York City. It first opened in 1923. I think this picture is important because it was a nightclub that was very famous in the 1920s. The Cotton Club, like other similar nightclubs, influenced our culture because it was an illegal drinking spot; due to prohibition. The Jazz Age was important because it was part of the cultural changes to come. The Jazz Age had a long lasting impact on pop culture.

The Cotton Club. the ever-beating heart of the Harlem Renaissance. I love to picture writers and artists walking in on a rainy day and sitting around drinks enjoying the jazz in a room full of smoke.

"Langston Hughes was a prominent member of the Harlem Renaissance -- a movement during the 1920s of black writers and intellectuals who engaged in intense debate regarding the place of the African American in American life, and on the role and identity of the African-American artist. Pictured here are Langston Hughes [far left] with [left to right:] Charles S. Johnson, E. Franklin Frazier, Rudolph Fisher and Hubert T.

"A Great Day in Harlem" - Art Kane attributed his famous photograph to being young and naïve. In August 1958 he was hired by Esquire magazine to come up with a photo to open an article about jazz. He figured he would contact every major jazz musician in New York to show up on 126th street in Harlem at 10am to take a group portrait. Getting jazz musicians anywhere together at 10am seemed impossible, but to everyone's surprise 57 musicians showed up. It was Art Kane's first professional photograph

Also in 1926, Hughes published a critical essay, "The Negro Artist and the Racial Mountain," which became a defining piece for the Harlem Renaissance movement.

The 369th infantry was rightly jubilant sailing back to New York in 1919. Three-quarters of the 200,000 black men in uniform served as menials or musicians - black women seeking to be nurses were rejected out of hand - but the 369th was different. The Harlem Hellfighters not only went toe-to-toe with Jerry but also became the first US unit to reach the Rhine.
