What you'll do

Experience a one-of-a-kind history tour through Harlem's public art, via a leisurely bike ride. We'll meet at a shop to rent bicycles (or bring your own) and tour through Harlem to see great sculptures of historic black figures, from Frederick Douglass to Harriet Tubman to Malcolm X to Duke Ellington. At each one, after a brief introduction, the statue will be "reanimated" with the audio playback of a key speech or writing, gradually filling out a tapestry of black history in America and in Harlem. We'll also have an exclusive visit to the Walls-Oritz Gallery, where my photography and video art was recently exhibited. We'll take a snack break at High Bridge Park, with its panoramic view of the north end of the city, and stroll past the picturesque Harlem Meer.
