Questions to How Well Do You Know Harlem?

Randolph Mase Blogging Tips 2

       Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! answers about “President Clinton’s Harlem” that I posted last week:   

  1. After World War I Harlem was the center of a literary movement known as the “Harlem” this; a European one took place from the 14th to the 17th centuries. – What is a Renaissance?
  2. The Great Depression saw many people coming to Harlem, including this man who would become the first black mayor of New York City. – Who is David Dinkins?
  3. Ben E. King and my friend Aretha Franklin have sung of this “Harlem” area north of 96th Street, historically associated with NYC’s large Puorto Rican population. – What is Spanish Harlem?
  4. After Martin Luther King Jr.’s death, Arthur Mitchell, the first black dancer in the New York City Ballet, opened this troupe in a garage on 152nd Street. – What is the Dance Theater of Harlem?
  5. In January 2012 President Obama sang a bit of “Let’s Stay Together” in tribute to Al Green at this famous Harlem venue. – What is the Apollo Theater?

       I got most of them (I guess I’m just not a dance connoisseur) – how did you do?
