I Remember Harlem

Though arguably no other New York City neighborhood has generated as many conflicting representations as Harlem, one singular documentary stands out: I Remember Harlem (240 minutes, 1981, 16mm film), directed and produced by legendary filmmaker William Miles. Miles’ epic lovingly renders the diverse, 350-year history of Harlem as both a living, breathing neighborhood and as the cultural hub of African-American life.

Richard Adams, Director of Photography, I Remember Harlem
Juanita Howard, Producer, I Remember Harlem
Michael Henry Adams, Harlem historian

The film will be screened in two parts, from 1 pm to 3 pm and from 4 pm to 6 pm, with a 60-minute intermission from 3 pm to 4 pm.
