8: he Legacy of the | The Harlem Renaissance left a strong title for Harlem, New York. Harlem is now known for its large population of African Americans and its diverse cultures and expressions. Because of the Harlem Renaissance, African American people were able to express themselves for the first time.This has lead to major events in our present, like the first African American President of the United Stated! It will always be known as the period in time where former slaves were able to be free, and the beginning of the road to less discrimination in our country. Ultimately, although African American obviously benefited the most from the Harlem Renaissance, other races and cultures began to realize that people from other backgrounds were good for something and had talent.
