In the 1920s, the Harlem Renaissance enabled black artists to chisel away at the barrier of white superiority and patronization in the arts. African Americans proved their capabilities with various breathtaking forms of rich, self-expressionistic visual artwork. They compelled the world to acknowledge African-American heritage and culture, gaining control over the representation of the black experience in American society.
