In the essay "Enter the New Negro", Alain Locke states how the New Negro has come to be, as well as how he is beginning to fit in more with modern society. Within this essay, Locke talks about how the New Negro didn't suddenly come to be, but has been in the process of becoming what it is now for a while. African Americans during the 1920's became a larger part of society, producing things such as art, poetry, and music, as well as showing how they have changed through their education and their outlook. African Americans were becoming more accepted and influential during the 1920's. During this time, African Americans did not only consciously fight for equality, but they had proved themselves equal through self-dependence and through inner objectives.
During the 1920's, the status and image of the African American underwent a drastic adaptation. The change, in turn, resulted in the revaluation and promotion of the African American race within society, that matches the slow gradient towards todays standards of equality. One of the most dramatic catalysts of this change was the realization of the African American potential for contemporary and fashionable musical development. At the time, African Americans offered the current society a culture of vigor and pride, embodied within music, that had never been seen before. As stated by Alain Locke in his essay, Enter the New Negro (Survey Graphic, March 1925)- "It must be increasingly recognized that the Negro has already made very substantial contributions, not only in his folk-art, music especially, which has always found appreciation, but in larger, though humbler and less acknowledged ways." This quote describes how African Americans were able to become more anthropomorphically acknowledged due to the debut of their avant-garde facility. This was undoubtably one of the most significant events in the timeline of the African American culture.
In an essay written by Alain Locke, called "Enter the New Negro" he shows how the new African American of the 1920's has outgrown the social status he/her was forced into during the time of slavery. Alain Locke believed that the new African American did not just appear overnight, instead slowly crept up from the side unwatched and took civilization by surprise. This new social status was not a bad thing however, even for those that opposed it, for Jazz music, new poetry and art came out of it. Nonetheless the social status gave the African American the willpower to stand up to unjust treatment. The new African American of the 1920's was strong, individual, intelligent and artist because they where in a social status that made it so they were acknowledged as a human being.
The status of African Americans in the 1920s changed after the long and constant struggle of the acceptance of African Americans. In this essay, Locke addresses the fact that the old negro was tired of the way they were being treated and demanded change. This was very symbolic to the start of the new African American. The Negro community had entered a new phase when African Americans had acquired self respect and self dependance. African Americans were being studied through their art, and letters in order to portray them as individuals. This new phase for African Americans went beyond race, but became about understanding. African Americans contribution was significant through art. African Americans needed to go through several hardships to eventually be treated correctly; as humans.
In the essay written by Alain Locke, he is talking about how the Negros (the new negro) is begging to fit better into the society. He is writing about they find another way to shout out their voice and the process their was within this. He comes to a conclusion, and says that the way the work up through society, was through poetry, music and other kind of way to express through context and entertaining the white majority. They did this at bars where they would perform to express themselves.
"The Negro mind reaches out as yet to nothing but American wants, American ideas."
As the 1920's progressed, african americans were being more recognized for what they could do and what they can create. As this dramastic change started to unveil, negros were more accepted into society. But were they truly equal, or were they still slaves to the people. As the only way society was able to recognize them was for what they did, and what they could do. Could both african americans and whites live together in the same country, or do they need to depend on each other? In this case, whites depending on blacks. What are blacks to the people of america, still slaves to drive us forward, or should they be recognized for more than what they can do. It doesn't seem fair for them to be served as equal, if they are forced to work for equality. Therfore, blacks did make many successes, but were only seen as americas wants and needs.
A major change found in the “New Negro” was a greater positive attitude, referred to when Locke stated “For the younger generation is vibrant with a new psychology; the new spirit is awake in the masses.” A greater self-understanding and respect also gained prevalence at the time, as evident when Locke wrote, “Little true social or self-understanding has or could come from such a situation...” Blacks also had a greater pride in themselves, explained by Locke when he wrote, “Similarly the mind of the Negro seems suddenly to have slipped from under the tyranny of social intimidation and to be shaking off the psychology of imitation and implied inferiority.” Locke wrote an excellent section on how the new negro was essentially an internal process that was derived from many realizations and a consequent understanding of the self, he summed it up as a “spiritual emancipation”. A cause for the change was explained by Locke when he wrote, “that shifting of the Negro population which has made the Negro problem no longer exclusively or even predominantly Southern.”
In the essay Enter The New Negro by Alain Locke, Locke explains the transformation of African Americans in the 1920's. Before the "metamorphosis" began, African Americans were treated inhumanely in America by others that were not of their race. Slowly, they became a functioning, more respected part of society, and many of the people who used to treat them badly, not only started to accept them, but were now entertained by their jazz and poetry. Locke also explains how African Americans were also learning their own self value, and became proud of themselves, leaving the past behind. Although the new negro was coming closer and closer to being equal, it took a while. He thoroughly expressed that in the beginning many whites were still against it and that it wasn't a perfect transition, but it is great that the transition did happen.
In Alain Locke's essay 'Enter the New Negro' the author shows how the past image or what he calls the 'Old Negro' is both holding back the New Negro and giving them something to hold onto and remember because it pushed them to get better for themselves. The 'New Negro' brought with him Jazz and poetry, adding to American culture more than they could've known at the time. They became something to wonder at and admire for their talent and they fought against their social restraints. Of course not all was fine and dandy but they were making progress in the way the 'New Negro' was viewed by the public at large.
Alain Locke’s essay “Enter the New Negro” displays the rapidly evolving life of African Americans to more progressive ideals during the 1920’s. No longer were African Americans constrained to living in the South, Locke pointed out. Blacks were more free to live where they wanted and to express their artistic skills more freely than in previous generations. Up to the 1920’s, African Americans had slowly but continually contributed their artistic abilities to society. In the 1920’s their skills for art forms such as jazz and poetry became widely known and appreciated. This “metamorphosis” of the negro life, similar to many insects, took much time to happen. However even after it “happened” blacks were still left without many rights. Without a doubt, though, the negro life was forever changed during the progressive 1920’s.
In Alain Locke's essay "Enter the New Negro", the author showed the changing status of African Americans in the 1920's by explaining how the "New Negro" can now accept themselves of whatever color they are despite society discriminating them. "And so the 'spite-wall' that the intellectuals built over the 'color-line' has happily been taken down." (pg. 3) The "New Negro" finally has the courage to not let society destroy themselves mentally and physically, with any hateful words that they say, and they learned how to stand up for themselves. With these actions, hateful words against a another race that colored is done and this was probably the most significant thing of the 1920's and also why our society today treats one another equally and with respect regardless of whatever race you are.
In this essay it explains the new Negro that came about in the 1920's. The status of Negros changed drastically during this time, the younger generation was vibrant with high spirits according to Locke. The Negros could no longer take the hardships they were put through and by coming together they created a new image for themselves. The New Negro was full of self respect, self dependence, and self pride. The New Negros showed there emotion and new found acknowledgment through Jazz music and poetry. Through these new art forms the Negros expressed their feelings and gained more confidence in being Black. The New Negros had to go through many difficult times in order to pave the path for them to start being treated as equal individuals.
The "New Negro" ideology in the 1920s is a true representative of the human spirit. "Enter the New Negro" by Alain Locke simply serves as a manifesto for this collective agreement. The idea of the New Negro arose from the previously accepted Old Negro; a wide-ranging stereotype which no black embodied, but was held as a backdrop to their behavior. Regardless of whether it was defended or attacked, the Old Negro was not a true representative of African Americans. Contributing factors to the creation of the New Negro were realization of talent with music, song, and poetry; three things that had previously been reserved exclusively for white people. Because African Americans realized that they were capable of such things, they were able to bloom into a beautiful new culture, still recovering from the trauma of previous generations.
Throughout the essay by Alain Locke (I keep wanting to call him John Locke), the so called New Negro is discussed. Locke talks about how not only has society started to view the African American community differently, but also the African Americans have begun to form a different picture of themselves. Before they conformed to what society thought of them so they could be protected. Later they also made excuses for their actions by saying that they were reacting to their horrible treatment. But by the 1920's they were beginning to stop excusing themselves and start to get on with their lives. They were seeing their own value only a short time before everyone else began to see it. This was a huge turning point for the African American community and the country as a whole. Without the entire Harlem Renaissance movement, racism could still be thriving and the entire dynamic could be drastically different.
African Americans were a changing people during the 1920s, and it all began with the publication of a document that would become their manifesto during the time of the Harlem Renaissance: Enter the New Negro by Alain Locke. Locke was a graduate from Harvard with a pH.D in philosophy, and was the first African American Rhodes Scholar. His work in African American Studies proved that the Old Negro was being set aside for the New Negro, a personage of new musical and artistic endeavors, who felt pride in his race, not because of insecurity but because of a new era that empowered him--the Harlem Renaissance.
The "new negro" mindset sparked a change in the African Americans at the dawn of the 1920's. In Alain Locke's essay, he says that "the mind of the Negro seems suddenly to have slipped from under the tyranny of social intimidation and to be shaking off the psychology of imitation and implied inferiority". The African Americans realized that they can be free from the burden of being inferior to white men. They let go of the chains of the past and step forward into a new dawn, changing the way they feel about themselves. A whole movement was set in place simply by a group of people deciding that they are meaningful and should be treated with respect, if only by themselves. And they respected themselves enough to stop allowing white people to walk all over them.
Before this new era beginning in the 1920's, African Americans were not considered to some as human, but rather a lower class as suggested in this quote: "So for generations in the mind of America, the Negro has been more of a formula than a human being ⎯ a something to be argued about, condemned or defended, to be “kept down,” or “in his place,” or “helped up,” to be worried with or worried over, harassed or patronized, a social bogey or a social burden. With this idea of being a "burden" or needing to be "kept down", it is no wonder that it was a long time before we saw the "New Negro" arrive and take over the country. Locke attributed this social change, to a few factors. The new immigration so to speak of African Americans beyond just Southern States gave them well due confidence, making them "an integral part of the large industrial and social problems of our present-day democracy" for the rest of history. But it took more than just changing zip codes to bring on the "New Negro Movement". No, the past expectations, history and emotions of the mistreatment of African Americans had to be thrown aside, for they were holding back for some time, the "New Negro".
In the essay "Enter the New Negro", written by Alain Locke, it shows the details of how the African American race were acknowledged for their achievements and contributions. Their music has changed the entertainment of the people. The 1920's changed the equality between the blacks and the whites. The African Americans were finally being seen as something more. This was the encouragement for arranging a new way to see each other differently. The African Americans' status changed over that period of time from the 1920's to now. The blacks finally were given the admiration that they deserved.
Alain Locke's, "Enter the New Negro" is an essay written about the new found acceptance of African Americans that took place in the 1920's. Locke specifically talks about the passionate contributions the African Americans had on society. Art, music, and literature were all entities that were heavily present in African culture, even before they were appreciated by society. Locke also talks about how "the old negro" was, in societies eyes, less of a human and more of formula, but through the arts, the voice of African Americans were heard throughout the nation. This new feeling of equality empowered the "new negro," giving him the confidence to become an individual, with equal opportunities.
The new negro was all changed by this "manifesto" of the harlem renaissance. This essay, "Enter the New Negro" by Alain Locke created the new standard for the black community. Jazz music and poetry were new found loves for the African Americans. They expressed knowledge and passion through these art forms. This was also a time when the new negro was becoming more excepted within society. The African Americans were being treated more like equal individuals.
Locke's "Enter the New Negro" tells of new era for African Americans. He points out how they are migrating to cities. They are not just a "southern problem." They wanted to be known as humans - with all their faults and shortcomings. A person is always so much more than their stereotypes. In the 1920's, African Americans expressing their thoughts more freely. Not only that, it was the beginning of the journey to destroy stereotypes and prove and proudly proclaim their humanitiy through arts, music, and culture.
As the 1920's moved into full swing, many changes occurred in the mindset and place of African Americans in American society. In the essay “Enter the New Negro” by Alain Locke, he describes the mental changes that the younger generations of African Americans underwent. For so many years the African Americans in the US were treated as and considered the equivalent of slaves, and the mental and physical boundaries that bound them to their places began to dissolve as the years wore on. The African Americans began to transform from being viewed as crippled, weak people to being more self-respectful and independent. During the Great Migration millions of them had moved north, and many of them took to large cities, where they encountered new advances in industry and culture. This exposure to culture led to more educated African Americans and the transformation of the African American mindset.
Alain Locke's "Enter the New Negro" is a masterful article that was made just for Harlem culture and the new way of life for African Americans. " -but more because he Old Negro had long become more of a myth" This article makes a commentary on the intellectual, artistic, and social culture found in Harlem and pioneered by the New Negro. The essay says that the old Negro was just a myth, and were not treated as humans. "Therefore, the Negro today wishes to be known for what he is, even in his faults and shortcomings, and scorns a craven and precarious survival at the price of seeming to be what he is not." The new intellectual Negro was breaking down barriers. The essay was an eloquently written, and is a great example of how the New Negro was taking over in Harlem.
African Americans have changed the views upon themselves and what they represented through the years. It was the beginning transition from the 'Old Negro' to the 'New Negro' that started this change. With the 'Old Negro... becoming more of a myth than a man' and the younger generation bringing more spirit to the masses, social perceptions would shift. This would cause them to accept themselves and their culture despite stereotypes and longstanding social views. As each generation had grown from the last, society advanced to create equal opportunities for the newly assured individuals and destroy a demeaning preceding perception.
As the century progressed into the 1920's the country saw a change in its African Americans, as explained by Alain Locke in "Enter the New Negro". One generation, weighed down by the recent past of slavery and the resulting discrimination, was fading away as a new one, more independent and intellectual, had begun to spring up. This new generation spread out over the country, to cities where they were treated like human beings, and could pursue their ambitions. This changed the African American psyche, causing them to gain confidence and participate more in political and social issues, both nationally and internationally.
"Enter the New Negro" by Alain Locke speaks a lot on the New Negro in the Roaring Twenties and how they came to be in that era. Two perspectives were presented on how African Americans were viewed in hindsight- to be oppressed or to be pitied. They were really viewed more as a 'social' burden than anything else in the twenties. Since they had been suppressed for so long, when the roaring twenties came about, they flourished with the music, poetry, and art in Harlem. These were creative outlets that African Americans used to spread their feelings, culture, past, present, and future without repercussions! Although the discrimination was not completely gone, they were viewed more as equals on these levels with the rest of society.Now that there were more African Americans in places other than the South, they were able to spread out and grow in different places rather than being chained to the South where there wasn't room for them to thrive. Generation after generation, they were able to grow together and gain equality that allowed them to fairly stand on a level playing field with the rest of society.
Alain Locke's "Enter the New Negro" is a well thought out article describing how African American culture has grown throughout the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920's. African American's showed high doses of success through Jazz, Poetry, Art, and dancing. This proved that the "New Negro" started to become accepted by society, and appreciated more. With the contributions through entertainment, African Americans were becoming more equal individuals.
Alain Locke's "Enter the new Negro", revolved around the drastic change African Americans underwent in the 1920's. Before this time era, one with dark skin was often considered as useful as a gardening tool. But in the 1920's, blacks were able to prove themselves to society by embracing their own talents to show to the world and later become best known for their jazz music. This was the time where all of the American people started getting noticed for their talents, gaining large amounts of money, blacks included. One noticeable aspect? They were no longer restricted to only living in the south.
Alain LeRoy Locke's short essay, "Enter to the New Negro" provided a very interesting approach to racism and especially so not from the racist's perspective but instead from the racially suppresed perspective and how to cope with being stereotyped. He believed that art and literature would break down the racial barrier. Locke was a Harvard graduate and the first Afriancan American Rhodes Scholar so his ideas must have been taken with some credit. I truly do think his ideas we in the right direction becuase if the general american population wasn't ready to just accept african americans, then this step of integrating through literature and art was a great idea. It really made sense with the whole Jazz Age movement being led by the Harlem Renaissance. I think the rise of all things 1920's in terms of entertainment did well for the integration of african americans into America as equals.
“Enter the New Negro” portrays the change in status for african americans as a gradual process rather than african americans expecting to be treated equally all of a sudden. It is recognized that it would be unrealistic to expect something they have never had before. For the whites to accept them, they needed to prove themselves, and show their contributions to society.“It must be increasingly recognized that the Negro has already made very substantial contributions, not only in his folk-art, music especially, which has always found appreciation, but in larger, though humbler and less acknowledged ways.” The african americans contributed music to society, and without it, the 1920’s would have been very different. Most people enjoy music, making it a great way for the african americans to become more equal through common interest. The style was influenced by them, bringing the 20’s to what it came to be. Even if the people didn’t realize it at the time, the african americans were very important to society and what it became.
During the roaring 20's a great deal was occurring in the African-American community. For the first time in history they were getting recognized and accepted for their accomplishments. Jazz, art and literature are just a few of the main things that they were becoming recognized for. Alan Locke's Essay "Enter the New Negro" discusses some the mental changes that many African-Americans went through during the roaring 20's. In addition to the acceptance of music, art and literature created by African-Americans, in general African-Americans were becoming more accepted as individuals by society.
The New Negro was somewhat great to what it was said to be. They created jazz making themselves more to what they wanted to be and do and didn't care what others thought. The 1920's was based off the music they created and showed more entertainment for all people. The whites were even looking up more towards blacks because of the music they created. Before the 1920's, African Americans were treated horrible. Now they are treated great and that's how it should have been before the 1920's. As of today African Americans are becoming more of equal individuals and have the same rights as whites do.
Alain Locke's "Enter the new Negro" explains the old negro and the new negro and how society views them as a whole. The Old Negro was described as to be worried with or worried over, harassed or patronized, a social bogey or a social burden, Locke stated. The New Negro had pride, respect, relied on themselves. They found a passion of jazz, music and poetry. Through this they gained more confidence in being african american. Society was starting to accept them as human beings.
The essay, "Enter the New Negro" displays a change in the 1920's from "the old negro" to the culture to the "new Negro." It discusses changes in the african american culture, how they started to value themselves more, and that they needed to show the whites that. They had amazing Jazz, art and literature that they could share and be recognized for. This change in the african americans didn't fully get rid of discrimination, but it was one step in that direction.
The New Negro described by Alain Locke was someone who kept their head held high and radiating confidence. Before blacks were in constant fear of what will happen to them. At any point their homes can be taken, families split and even their lives taken. Now when prosperity hits America, the New Negro comes out, they begin to find talents and skills that give them a job, happiness and something to be proud of. Now they see the value in themselves. The people around also begin to take notice that they can not hold down this new generation like they did with the previous ones. This generation takes pride in their culture and will not be put down so easily.
Within Locke's essay, he supports the idea of the "New Negro," which was the African-American community becoming more self-confident in themselves through their folk music, poetry, and other forms of literature that were used as a medium to support themselves in society. Locke touches on how the Negro changes his opinion, from a "idols of the tribe," to holding themselves at par with the white man. Another point touched on was the "inner objective" of the New Negro. The objective is described as a attempt at repairing a sect of people who for an indefinite amount of time, have always been viewed as subordinates. Finally, Locke ends with stating that there have been communities that have dedicated themselves to the restoration of the New Negros' social class.
In the essay enter the new negro Alain Locke writes about the transformation from the old negro to the new negro. In the essay he talks about how the new negro coming to be but it was not over night, It was a process to get to the status of the new negro from the old. The new negro was more appreciated by the way they contributed to society with their art. They were becoming more individual with their poetry and jazz. Through all of this the new negro started to be more appreciative of themselves. In the end society was starting to accept the new negro.
"Enter the New Negro" talks about the "New Negro" and how they are fitting into society. Life before the 1920's was not the best for colored people, it wasn't at it's top shape during the 1920's, but it was a lot better than colored people were being treated before and how colored people perceived themselves. African Americans had always put themselves down, but during the 1920's African Americans no longer "suppressed" themselves and they wanted to become more of who they were without shame, recreating themselves to have self-respect and self-independence. African Americans showed their culture and a new beginning through their music (Jazz), and poetry. It was the first time that a colored culture wasn't seen as just a "colored' culture, but brought into the American Society. Thanks to the 1920's it brought African American's one step closer to becoming part of society rather than being ridiculed.
The " New Negro " gives a good perspective on how Negros were being treated, how they saw themselves, and the differences from Negros in the south. This decade of people brought a light to others that had not been seen before because there was never an appropriate time to shine. This Jazz age gave them something to live for which brought out the confidence and pride that the Negros needed at this time. They state that the " Intelligent Negro of today is resolved to not make discrimination and extenuation for his short comings in performance". Although discrimination still existed, he just looked at himself as equal.
"Enter the New Negro" brings the entire purpose of the harlem renaissance to attention. African Americans were finally gaining more nationwide pride in their race, and fear of being rejected by society was slowly but surely depleting. In fact, the African Americans contributed one of the most influential parts of the 1920s.... Jazz! Music finally became exciting and fun but it still had the ability to talk about dark situations like the blues. Not only that, this was a way they could connect with everyone in society. For instance, Cab Calloway had thousands of white fans because they saw his true talent, despite the color of his skin. Jazz music most definitely went along with the pleasure seeking lifestyles of the roaring 20s and the world would most certainly be different without it! The influence of the 1920s, though predominantly white, was beginning to see just a bit more color. America as a nation was one step closer to equality.
During the 1920's African American culture, thinking, and general attitudes changed dramatically, this change-- dubbed the "New Negro Movement" is not only characterized, but also described in detail in Alain Locke's essay "Survey Graphic, March 1925: Harlem: Mecca of the New Negro". Locke illustrates the new wave of thinking in the African American community by his comparison of the "Old Negro" and the "New Negro". In his depiction he shows the "Old Negro" as a disillusioned individual, one that trapped in the cycle of self pity, while the "New Negro" is one that looks to the future and focuses on building up the acomplishments of African Americans and contributing to society.
Alain Locke's essay "Enter the New Negro” shows how the status of the American Americans changed, from the old negro, to the new negro. This change didn’t happen in a day, it was a process. The old negro was not except by society. As Locke states they were “to be worried with or worried over, harassed or patronized, a social bogey or a social burden”. The new negro was more appreciated, and was except by society. This new negro had self respect, self dependence, and self pride. They contributed with Jazz and poetry. “It must be increasingly recognized that the Negro has already made very substantial contributions, not only in his folk-art, music especially, which has always found appreciation, but in larger, though humbler and less acknowledged ways.” These African Americans went through a journey in order to finally be treated with equality.
In Alain Locke's essay 'Enter the New Negro' the author explains how the "New Negro" came to be. The new negro changed the way society looked upon African Americans. The African Americans in the 1920's gained a new respect because of their music and attitude. They accomplished a lot especially through their music selection. "The migrant masses, shifting from countryside to city, hurdle several generations of experience at a leap, but more important, the same thing happens spiritually in the life-
attitudes and self-expression of the Young Negro, in his
poetry, his art, his education and his new outlook..." This quote from the writing explains what African Americans had to go through. Changing their location from farms to cities was one of their struggles. The quotes also explains how through all their life experiences they brought a different meaning to music, poetry, and education.
In the essay, 'Enter the New Negro', Alain Locke explains how the New Negro came to be during the Roarin' 20's. Mostly, the New Negro was always there, it just needed a confidence boost and a change of perspective. "We have not been watching in the right direction; set North and South on a sectional axis, we have not noticed the East till the sun has us blinking." This quote shows how perspective can unfortunately be left out until it is too late. White people had a twisted perspective about Black people that had been in place for a very long time. Another thing that the New Negro needed was a confidence booster. Nothing could be changed if the Negro just wallowed in self-pity. But the New Negro found a booster through music; Jazz and poetry. With the help of these things, the New Negro found a way to present itself, find pride in itself, and help better society. "Up to the present one may adequately describe the Negro’s “inner objectives” as an attempt to repair a damaged group psychology and reshape a warped social perspective." In other words, The New Negro main goal was to rebuild the pride of the Negros and show the rest of society who they truly are.
"...we have not noticed the East till the sun has us blinking." The New Negro is a term for the changing status in African Americans in the 1920's, and can be clearly expressed through Alain Locke's linguistic account, "Enter the New Negro". African Americans now had more education, expression of the arts, and overall: more say in society. With these new found advancements in the African American society, an era of enlightenment seeped heavily into the soul of America. The New Negro was not cast in a light of "less than human", but as a more important contribution to society. In the 1920's, the New Negro was now looked at in a different way: "...the Negro is being carefully studied, not just talked about and
discussed. In art and letters, instead of being wholly caricatured, he is being seriously portrayed and
painted." With opening one's eyes, comes opening one's mindset. The 1920's helped shift the way of thinking of the American people, leading to what we now can call equality among races.
Alain LeRoy Locke's essay, "Enter to the new Negro" was a very compelling essay on racism and the views of the people on the firing line. He believed that there was no such thing as a old negro. That it was only a myth. His words are strong enough to move a people in a correct direction. As he is talking about how they know there is some people to help them out but are they helping just to push them back down. His essay might not have been any 20 page piece of text block after text block but it had the power behind to to display to people that there is a choice and that there is a way to equality.
The New Negro is not predominately Southern as it was before the Great Migration. They have a new sense of pride about then for their race and what the Essay calls "renewed self-respect and self-dependence." This is changed by the amount of self expression that the New Negro conveys to the rest of the world. Through Poetry, Art, Education, and his/her new outlook on life. A very inspiring quote from the text that is a good overarching theme for how the New Negro stayed strong during this difficult time of rebirth. "The buoyancy from within compensating for whatever pressure there may be of
conditions from without" meaning that no matter what happened around them or what conditions they were put into because their race, they were able to always resurface because of the buoyancy of their new nature.
In the Essay, Enter the New Negro, written by Alain Locke, the new negro defies the old negro with lots of new charteristics that define future african american today. In the essay, the negro was more confident and had more "Self Respect". It also said that the main new change, was that the African American population was mre prevalent all over america and not just in the South. This is important because this brought more people to work up in the north and other places that need workers. Most of the Jazz scene was also up north too. So overall, the new negro was much different!
In this essay it talks about te New Negro and about their struggle to find a voice. They stand up and make a voice by music and dancing and sharing their emotions through their music.
Enter the New Negro, by Alain Locke, talks about the evolution of a predominant migration from the South to the North transitioning from rural to urban and suburban communities. Locke talks about the transformation from the "Old Negro" to the "New Negro" comparing those that were known for controversy and debate, to a growing generation transforming society. This new generation was known to be expressed through poetry, art, education, and creating a new outlook on life.
