Who were some of the Harlem Renaissance artists in cities outside of Harlem?

The Harlem Renaissance affected the whole world. Blacks everywhere became inspired, and started poetry circles, little theaters, and painting classes.

Although New York City was the center of the Harlem Renaissance, there were many creative blacks in other cities: in Boston, William Stanley Braithwaite (1878-1962), a poet; and in Washington, D.C., writers Georgia Douglas Johnson (1886-1966) William Cuney, and Sterling Brown (1901- ).

Main Locke, also of Washington, was a writer and professor of philosophy at Howard University.
