A Musical exploring the dynamics of gentrification in Harlem as a transforming community comes face to face with their differences, and their cultural identities are tested at a traditional block party.
As Harlem prepares to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance,this presentation takes on a timely and historic significance as a documentation of art, culture and race in America. Businesses, schools, cultural institutions, politicians, the people--new and long-time residents--are creating their particular stories, investigating and illuminating their imprint on a world-renowned community.
Hear some of the most diverse voices of Harlem today as a transforming community comes face to face with their differences and their cultural identities are tested at a traditional block party.
We all know what Harlem was – the world renowned Mecca of black culture to which artists and thinkers of color moved in masse for more than a century. This influx of creative minds established a significant cultural incubator through which a civilizing identity emerged that came to define African American artistry.
Diverse groups of people are moving into the neighborhood and blacks are disappearing. In this decade of gentrification where is this historically African American community going? We welcome diverse voices, impressions, ideas and perspectives in striving to reach a common ground for the new Harlem, whatever its complexion.
