Harlem, New York: Arts in Harlem

  • National Black Theatre 2031 5th Ave New York, NY, 10035 United States

Join us to explore Harlem. We will start at the National Black Theatre, walk through Marcus Garvey Park to see installation art, walk west on 121st street to the Harriet Tubman Statue on St Nicholas Ave, head back to the Adam Clayton Powell statue on 7th Ave and 125th street, and finish at Studio Museum Harlem, which has free admission on Sundays. 
 
This walk is part of a new play called “Gutting,” written by Jeremy Kamps, being produced in Harlem by Company Cypher at the National Black Theatre, September 24 - October 3. “Gutting” is set three years after Hurricane Katrina and follows 14-year-old runaway Kali and the people around her who struggle to keep their homes in the Lower 9th Ward from being gutted. As part of the production and the ten-year-anniversary of the Hurricane, we are hosting various Jane Jacobs Walks in Harlem, so audiences can see the real impact of urban development and displacement, and have discussions about gentrification, displacement, and race issues that affect us here in Harlem.
