Seth Boyden Multi-Agers Celebrate 1920s Rent Party
28, 2017, multi-agers ( 1st/2ndgraders) got together, and had a party that was
like a real time machine. It took everyone back to the 1920’s, when rent
parties were popular in Harlem, to pay the rent. Each of the classes performed their
own song by the famous Harlem Renaissance person they were studying, like Duke
Ellington’s Take The A Train, and “Fats” Waller’s Ain’t Misbehavin’. Also, one
class read two poems by Langston Hughes.After all the classes performed,
they had Southern food made by the parents, like collard greens, cornbread, and
chicken. Oh, what a party that was!
