I Remember Harlem

When: 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM SUNDAY, APRIL 23

Where:Museum of the City of New York 1220 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10029

Although arguably no other New York City neighborhood has generated as many conflicting representations as Harlem, one singular documentary stands out: I Remember Harlem, directed and produced by legendary filmmaker William Miles. This epic film lovingly renders the diverse, 350-year history of Harlem as both a living, breathing neighborhood and as the cultural hub of African-American life in New York City. Screening will include a conversation with Richard Adams, Director of Photography, I Remember Harlem; Juanita Howard, Producer, I Remember Harlem; and Michael Henry Adams, Harlem historian. Archive Project Board Member and Harlem historian John T. Reddick will introduce the film. The film will be screened in two parts, from 1:00-3:00 p.m. and from 4:00-6:00 p.m., with a 60-minute intermission from 3:00-4:00 p.m.
