The Lincoln Theatre’s Community Conversations is a free series designed to generate community discussion on a variety of interesting questions surrounding the arts. In the 1920s, our nation experienced an influx of African-American literature, art, and music of such undeniable quality that it served as a catalyst for racial pride and challenged the pervading racism and stereotypes of the day. On Thursday, October 26, the Lincoln Theatre’s Community Conversation “Heralds of the Harlem Renaissance” profiles individuals that helped pave the way for the resulting cultural, social, and artistic explosion known today as the Harlem Renaissance.

This 90-minute, multi-media presentation will be interspersed with discussion from Dr. Ted McDaniel, professor of African-American music at The Ohio State University; Dr. Valerie Lee, interim chair for the OSU Department of African-American and African Studies; Jack Marchbanks, Lincoln Theatre Association board member and co-host of WCBE’s “Jazz Sunday;” and Suzan Bradford, general manager of the Lincoln Theatre. The speakers will also serve as panelists in the Q&A session to follow.
