Segregation and discrimination between African Americans and Americans were distinct during the Harlem Renaissance. During this time in history, African Americans were taking a stand for their rights and to obliterate segregation. African Americans slowly became more literate and began to have equal rights as those of Americans. Since discrimination was still present during the middle of the 1900’s, many individuals who were treated unfairly started to stand up for their rights. Two well-known poets, Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou, have decided to take a stand to put an end to the gap between both races.

Those laws were set to grant only certain rights to people of color.
