The Harlem Renassciance was about giving a voice to the experiences of African Americans, and nothing gave expression to the African American experience better than jazz. Jazz evolved from slave work songs,spirituals (religious Black American folk songs) blues, brass band music and ragtime. Jazz more than any other music, has been intimately linked with legal and social equality for all, particularly African Americans.
