“I Remember Harlem”

I Remember Harlem - Film at MCNY - April 23 2017

Sunday, April 23, 2017 | 1:00pm – 5:20pm

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.
