In Celebration of Black History Month: I Remember Harlem

Dir. William Miles, 1980, 60 min.

A 60 minute, condensed version of this seminal four-hour series tracing Harlem's 350-year history, evoking one of America's most vibrant and volatile communities. As a visual counterpart to the oral histories in the film, Miles unearthed old photographs and motion picture films and newsreel footage, much of it rare and never before seen on television. In early 1982, one year after it was broadcast, I Remember Harlem won an Alfred I. Dupont-Columbia University Citation and an American Film Festival Award.
