Specifically, the paper looks at how, the African-American culture, which developed in the poor homes of Harlem, is essential for underlining the diversity of the US cultural environment and, at the same time, stands out as the fruit of the tormented existence of the Black people, in a way, similar to the actual struggling experience of the creation of the United States.
