    I like that you appreciated the symbolic side of jazz music in this picture in addition to the surface level of it. What is your opinion on the mixing of jazz music with equal rights and do you think there is a correlation? I think you could polish your post a bit by giving more of your opinion instead of just analyzing it.

    Good explanation of the significance of Jazz during this time period. Why did you focus on this aspect of the harlem renaissance?. Just a little bit of word revision is necessary. Great Job!
