The African American Culture is rooted In Africa. We came about through slavery. For may years our culture has been developed separately from the mainstream America, both because of slavery and the persistence of racial delimitation In America. Also African-American slave descendants’ desire to create and malting their own traditions. In the African American Culture there are many things that have been done to contribute to today’s society for example dance, music, art and literature.
The first major public recognition of the African American culture occurred during the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920 and sass. Authors and poets that were brought into the limelight were Zorn Neal Hurst, Longs Hughes, and Courtney Culled. This era was where Jazz, Swing, and the blues entered the world. Musicians such as Fats Waller, Duke Elongating, and Jelly Roll Morton were considered to have laid the foundation for future musicians of their genre. I feel that the Arts are one of the hugest contributions that African Americans have made in our society.
I intend to keep the arts apart of my life. Blackfoot Indian The Nationalist, also known as Blackfoot Indians, mostly reside in South Montana and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.
