Faces of Harlem

Faces of Harlem

Faces of Harlem seeks to act as a cultural mediator—presenting work and people that are often underrepresented in Harlem with a particular emphasis on highlighting the neighborhood’s African American and diasporic cultures. In disinvested, low-income communities of color, art acts as a tool for strengthening cultural identity and processing trauma. Faces of Harlem will facilitate an understanding of the past by envisioning a shared, more equitable future through the power of photography and oral history.
