Jacob Lawrence was a Harlem  Renaissance painter/artist. As an artist Jacob was able to capture through the power of images the trial and tribulation of black folk, as they left the southern United States in hopes for better opportunities in the North. He along with  Zora Neal Hurston, Langston Hughes, W.E.B Du Bois and many others used their gifts to usher in a movement. The movement that they authored still has a strong cultural impact to this this day, and no doubt past the days of the future.
