Harlem: Pictures worth 1,000 words…

While I’m at it, There’s this Dope exhibit going on in my hometown about my hometown by a great photographic artist.

(how cool is this kid?)

Dawoud Bey’s Harlem, USA is an art exhibit at The Studio Museum of Harlem, which is a sorely overlooked treasure smack dab in the middle of 125th that Blacks don’t take enough interest in and advantage of. It’s a photographic look at the people and identities that have created this enormously historic and popular landmark area of NYC. This small stretch of land between roughly 100 blocks has always been a subcultural epicenter in African-American history, and these vintage images display just how.

Although the work has been showcased since November 11th, it has just gained notoreity this Black History Month. It will go on until March 13th. Make a trip as soon as you can and support dope art and the history of the greatest part of the greatest boro! Show the gift shop some love. Shout out to Indigo!
