I love this era because of the classiness and bougieness of it all. Pearls, dresses, fur, fancy hats, I LOVE IT ALL! You cannot tell me that the Harlem Renaissance Era is not bougie. The photos were found on Google Image search! I do not know their original photographer so I do apologize!  Well enjoy the photos below! Cheers!

  • Wow love these photographs. One of my icons as a child was Betty Boop and she was designed after a singer, Ester Jones, although uncredited. GREAT idea for a party theme!

      I know right! There is this cave in Saint Paul, MN that is all about the 1920’s so maybe one year you dress up and go there to party! 🙂 Thanks for commenting!

  • I love these photo’s !!!
    This would probably be my favortie era as far as the progression of black people! Fashion wise, I really appreciate the 1950’s-1960’s!

      I know right! All the intellectuals, writers, artists, and actors… OH MY GOSH!!! If I had to choose an era to be born in, it most likely would be this one as well! 🙂
