The Harlem Renaissance came during a time of incredible unrest for the Black community in America, due in large part to the Red Summer of 1919. Racial terrorism took place all across America, with the most deadly attack happening in Elaine, Arkansas. Out of that time came artistic legends like writer Langston Hughes, singer Billie Holiday, and painter Jacob Lawrence.

Toni Morrison once said, "This is precisely the time when artists got to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal." On today's episode, hosts Caree Banton and Warrington Sebree are joined by Sharon Killian to discuss the impact of art in the Black community. Sharon Killian is president of Art Ventures and an artist herself.
