The Harlem Renaissance was an unrivaled period of brilliance. Created in collaboration with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and hosted by Michael Mwenso, Harlem 100 presents the most exciting Harlem musicians and dancers in a modern variety show that pays homage to the presentations made famous in the Apollo Theater, the Cotton Club and other celebrated venues of the Harlem Renaissance. Featuring the music of Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith and Ethel Waters, as well as a nine-piece band with three dancers, Harlem 100 celebrates one of the most influential artistic movements of our country and gives insight into Harlem then and now.
