The vibrant and bustling neighborhood occupying the upper reaches of Manhattan has been at the crossroads of the artistic, literary and political currents of the African-American community since the Harlem Renaissance of the early twentieth century. This sweeping photographic survey includes nearly 300 images that tell the story of Harlem throughout the twentieth century, its distinctive landscape and extraordinary inhabitants. The work of eighty artists and photographers is paired with texts by important Harlem scholars and quotes from important writers on the subject of Harlem. The book is divided in three sections: Early Twentieth Century; Revolution--the 1960s and 1970s; and Harlem Now--1980s through the Present.
