Harlem and Strivers’ Row

With Zack Rhodes

[In-person tour] If walls could talk, the buildings along the West 130s would tell the stories of Harlem’s rise as a major cultural center for Black Americans in the 20th century. On this tour with Zack Rhodes, we will primarily focus on the leading Black politicians, entertainers, sports figures, and leaders in the medical community who lived in Strivers’ Row, and fought against red-lining to be able to call this community their home. We will visit their former homes, the oldest Black Christian congregation in NYC, and a park named after the patron saint of Amsterdam, whose image adorned the hulls of the first ships which brought Dutch settlers to the New World. We will end the tour visiting the original home and grounds of one of America’s Founding Fathers.

Registration is now closed.
