Description

Long before Harlem became one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in the red-hot property market of Manhattan, it was a metaphor for African American culture at its richest. This is the classic record of Harlem life during some of the most exciting and turbulent years of its history, a beautiful - and poignant - reminder of a powerful moment in African American history. Includes the work of some of Harlem's most treasured photographers, extraordinary images are juxtaposed with articles recording the daily life of one of New York's most memorialised neighbourhoods.
