“A People’s History of Harlem

A Harlem Neighborhood Oral History Project”

This is a neighborhood oral history project that works to both preserve and document Harlem history through the stories of people who have experienced it. This project will collect oral histories of people who have lived or worked in the surrounding Harlem neighborhood and train community members to conduct these interviews. Both longtime and more recent residents are invited to share their neighborhood stories, documenting Harlem’s past and present history.

View Documentation | Interviews are preserved at The Milstein Division, available in a circulating collection, and accessible here at the New York Public Library website.

For more information about this project, please contact Alexandra Kelly at Outreach Services and Adult Programs, AlexandraKelly@nypl.org or (212) 621-0552.
