Description

This silkscreen print celebrates Harlem when it was the mecca for black folks. A place where black artists, black writers, black musicians, black academics, black actors call home. I found an Op-ed piece in an old newspaper in my studio titled “The End of Black Harlem. I had just come from visiting a friend who lived on 130th St. and Lenox. It was a beautiful day, the outdoor seats of the restaurants were full and all of the faces were white. Steps away at the corner were black men and women begging for money, suffering from extreme poverty. The Op-ed piece echoed what I was feeling at that moment. So I called the author, Micheal Henry Adams if I could use his article in my art and he gave me his blessing.
