A Walk Through Harlem


This amazing production kept me up into the wee hours of the night as I learned about Harlem History...I'm going to own this one day.
I saw the insides of buildings I admire and heard the histories of people and places long forgotten but so influential and important to black culture. A Walk Through Harlem
