Harlem Renaissance 2.0
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Our event is called TEDxHarlem, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxHarlem event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
TEDx brings the spirit of TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading to local communities around the globe. TEDx events are organized by curious individuals who seek to discover ideas and spark conversations in their own community. The Harlem Renaissance was an intellectual, social, and artistic explosion centered in Harlem, New York, spanning the 1920s. It symbolized a “rebirth” through culture, artistic vision, and business acumen in the burgeoning community of Harlem. TEDxHarlem reboots these principals in 2019 with our theme Harlem Renaissance 2.0.
