Staged throughout three floors at Federal Hall National Memorial, harlem is...DOWNTOWN brings four of the organization’s signature exhibits together for the first time: harlem is...ACTIVISM, harlem is MUSIC, harlem is...THEATER, and harlem is...DANCE. The culmination of an oral history project pairing scholars, educators and artists with public school and art students, these exhibits have toured the city individually since 2001, honoring the history of Harlem and its iconic people and places. What makes this installation of the harlem is... series extraordinary is its glorious venue, which allows this body of research to shine in its entirety, and helps to connect the journey of African Americans in Harlem to the history of Lower Manhattan.
harlem is...DOWNTOWN has been presented by Community Works NYC. Read more HERE.
