Made in Harlem: Class of ’68
Fall 2018-Spring 2019
Made in Harlem: Class of '68 unpacks and explores the period before, during, and after the birth of key cultural institutions in Harlem, in the wake of the assassination of MKL on April 4th, 1968. These institutions include the Studio Museum, the National Black Theater, El Museo del Barrio and the Dance Theater of Harlem. The climate in which these institutions were born, carried the weather of Black Power, the Civil Rights Era, and Black Arts Movement -- the impact of which is felt in the early 21st century. Made in Harlem: Class of ’68 explores the impact of the period, and the institutions born from it, that are with us today 50 years later. Programmed by Jessica Green.
