Abstract

Abstract:

Despite the loss and steady destruction of Harlem to gentrification, the legendary neighborhood radiates cultural energy through its archives and memories. There's a deep melancholy in the story of coming to know a place only to watch its residents pushed evermore to the edge; of attempting to find belonging in a neigh-boyhood where a proud past looms over a community that is losing the battle to determine its own future. But what if, in this generation, the hope we continued to place in that one neighborhood was misallocated? What if the seeds are being planted for another kind of revolution, for a global mecca whose birth pangs you might miss if your vision was focused too narrowly on the blocks north of Central Park?
