About The Show
In the early twentieth-century, Harlem became the epicenter of an explosion of art, culture, and social movement in the African-American community. Raisin' Cane celebrates the history of the Harlem Renaissance and its mission to use art to change society in order for African Americans to find acceptance in it. Award-winning actress Jasmine Guy weaves together poetry, song, dance, and spoken word from the most noteworthy voices of the Harlem Renaissance, and the Avery Sharpe Trio offers an original, evocative jazz score.
