"Please join us at the opening of an exhibition of Fine Art Collectible Photographs that document the transformation of Harlem from an Afro-American village in upper Manhattan that was racially homogeneous and culturally unique, to a multiracial, multi-ethnic community which, though still predominantly Afro-American, has evolved into a cosmopolitan Milieu. Afro-Americans lived in relative isolation in this upper Manhattan enclave” until the new millennium. For most of the 20th Century this change was a dramatic and unforeseen development.

This exhibition being of historical importance, highlights key moments that focus on the expression of the people of Harlem.

This exhibition of poignant photographic images by outstanding photographers captures the unique culture of Harlem between 1960 to 2012 and illustrates the forces that led to dramatic change. It is living history through pictures that capture rare moments in Afro-American history and provides another dimension to the saga of the world’s greatest city."

- Written by Playthell Benjamin.
