Congo in Harlem is a showcase of films, art, panel discussions and special events focused on the history, politics, and culture of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The goal of the series is to deepen our community's understanding of DR Congo through art and dialogue. Each year we strive to present a diverse program that encourages audiences to think critically and challenge their assumptions about Congo, but most importantly, we want people to have fun! Congo in Harlem is more than just movies and discussions -- it's an opportunity to discover Congo's culture, learn about its challenges, and get involved.
