From its humble beginnings as a farming community and a country retreat for the rich, to its incarnation as a Mecca of black art and society, to its current reputation as a crime-ridden slum, symbolising the urban ills of the world, Harlem has been the source of unparalleled inspiration and writing. This anthology collects work from all of Harlem's many seasons, including poems, rap, personal memories and narratives in the unforgettable voices of Malcolm X, Maya Angelo, Langston Hughes, Duke Ellington, Sidney Poitier and more, to offer a stunning portrait of Harlem.
