“Lift Every Voice” highlights important cultural, artistic, and political figures and events focusing on the contributions of several key figures in the Harlem Renaissance, such as W.E.B. DuBois, James Weldon Johnson, Louis Armstrong and Zora Neale Hurston,” according to The WordPlayers. “It also puts into context the incredible influence of the Harlem Renaissance on people such as Elvis Presley, Spike Lee, Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”
