So what did you and I both learn today? Well you got to broaden your knownedge in U.S History, specifically in the 'New Negro Movement' and I learned that making a quiz for a website is a lot more time consuming than what I previously expected.

So are you truely an expert on the Harlem Renaissance? No, but hey neither are we. There is an unforgiving amount of information on this subject and more to be discovered but it's all worth it because the artistic abilities of all the major figures is truely amazing and I would love to learn some more.
