L'histoire d'Harlem avec Savona

New York, États-Unis

Expérience organisée par Savona

  1. 2,5 heures
  2. Proposée en Anglais

Au programme

Our experience bridges important time periods together. We begin at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the premier center of its kind in the world. We'll explore how Africans, forced to leave their homeland, came to both the Caribbean and the Americas through slavery. You will understand how they impacted food, music, popular culture and dance with exhibits, film or sound.

Their struggle made Harlem a center for social movements from the mid 1880s to the present.

We touch on the Trans Atlantic Slave trade, its impact on human relations between American-born citizens and immigrants at that time. We'll delve into the New Negro Movement, which sparked the modern civil rights movement in this country and explore depression-era exhibitions such as the recently restored WPA murals in Harlem Hospital. Together, we’ll discover how we can learn how to heal from the past to move towards a better future.

If you know that you will be in town for several days, book early so I can assist with an itinerary that can include a lindyhop or tap dance class and /or food tasting.

Feel free to bring your own camera to take pictures and dress appropriately for the weather.
