“I Remember Harlem”

Sunday, April 23rd at 1:00 pm at the Museum of the City of New York
Though arguably no other New York City neighborhood has generated as many conflicting representations as Harlem, one singular documentary stands out: I Remember Harlem (240 minutes, 1981, 16mm film), directed and produced by legendary filmmaker William Miles. Miles’ epic lovingly renders the diverse, 350-year history of Harlem as both a living, breathing neighborhood and as the cultural hub of African-American life.
