If you want to learn more about the connection between the literary and visual arts of the Harlem Renaissance, you will hardly find a better source than E. Ethelbert Miller. Accessible, intellectual, and a poet in his own right, Miller will share his broad-ranging knowledge on everything from the effect of the boll weevil on the Great Migration to his estimation of Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith as black women writers preceding Zora Neale Hurston, and field audience questions at “Perspectives on the Harlem Renaissance.” At 3 p.m. at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, 17th & New York Ave. NW. (202) 639-1727. Free. (HB)
