Overview

United Youth of New Jersey's latest play "Harlem Renaissance: Another Black Wall Street" is far from a boring history lesson. Through compelling performances and toe-tapping musical numbers, the show explores how the cultural and intellectual movement redefined black culture in the 1920s and continued empowering African Americans through the civil rights era of the 1960s. Along the way, "Harlem Renaissance" details little-known aspects of the period like the founding of the Negro Writers Guild, all while telling the stories of such notable figures as Malcolm X and Duke Ellington. And it's all for a good cause -- all proceeds from the show will go towards funding UYNJ's programs meant to provide a safe haven for youth in Elizabeth and the surrounding areas.
