Rémy Martin and the Harlem Writers Guild have teamed up to launch “Voices of Harlem” – a content series that pays tribute to the written word and voices originating from the Harlem Renaissance era. The series also highlights the parallels between music and poetry, as powerful means of expression.
Through curated content, poems from iconic African American poets of the early 20th century are read by poets of Harlem today. Featured is Gift to Sing, Mother to Son, Harlem Wine and My Little Dreams, each with a unique sound but similar origin story; all with roots in Harlem, New York. The backdrop to the poet’s voices are four different musical melodies created by Grammy-Award winning producer Jermaine Dupri, as tribute to the golden age of African American arts that has deeply inspired his personal journey as a musical artist.
The explosion of artistic excellence during the Harlem Renaissance sparked a movement that significantly shaped American culture from that point on, and the root of it all can be drawn back to the streets of Harlem. Rémy Martin’s commitment to celebrating the best that communities and cultures have to offer, mirrors the Harlem Writers Guild’s ambition of amplifying voices of the African American and African Diaspora through written word.
Rémy Martin has made a donation to the Guild in a commitment to preserving cultures of excellence and amplifying African American voices.
