LOOKING BACK: Storefronts along along Frederick Douglass Boulevard feature scenes from the Harlem Renaissance, paying tribute to jazz and literary heroes, including Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Langston Hughes.

 

Blurb: This Christmas season, Harlem is standing out in its own way. Eight businesses along Frederick Douglass Boulevard, from 114th street to 122nd street, have holiday window displays depicting the essence of the Harlem Renaissance and showcase the community's rich culture.

The windows depict scenes from the era of enlightenment in Harlem, such as the prohibition period and a tribute to flappers, women in the Roaring Twenties who wore feathered hats and defied the rules of how women conducted themselves at the time.
