Harlem One Stop has chosen some destinations for you, because the neighborhood of Harlem is the de facto African-American capital, and a powerful barometer of black America’s pulse. The observance of the Black History Month began as an annual event... more called "Negro History Week" in February of 1926 and then expanded fifty years later into the full Black History Month celebration that it is today. From the time of the event’s beginnings, New York City’s upper Manhattan area was already home to the artistic and literary explosion known as the Harlem Renaissance. Here are a few activities and destinations in Harlem during Black History Month:Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, 515 Malcolm X Boulevard (also known as Lenox Avenue), is a world-renowned repository of historical and cultural materials documenting peoples ofAfrican descent. And there are always eye-opening exhibits to walk through for free.Studio Museum in Harlem, 144 West 125th Street, showcases contemporary work by artists of African descent. Among several concurrent exhibitions, Dawoud Bey's Harlem, USA, particularly recalls Harlem’s historic streets as seen by photo chronicler James VanDerZee.Estate Of Lena Horne Auction at Doyle New York, 175 East 87th Street, may prove that Harlem is not just uptown. The late Lena Horne embodied the height of Harlem glamour, from her start in the chorus line of the famous Cotton Club to international stardom in Hollywood and on Broadway. The public may eye, and perhaps buy, her personal items of jewelry, art, photos, clothing and other effects.Apollo Theater, 253 West 125th Street, Parlor Jazz at Marjorie Eliot's, 555 Edgecombe Avenue, Apt 3F, and The Shrine, 2271 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd., are, respectively, America’s premier arena forblack performers, an intimate home-based jazz soirée, and a world-music venue that cooks with Harlem’s legendary heat.National Jazz Museum in Harlem, 104 E. 126th Street, Suite 2C, is a Smithsonian affiliate that keeps Harlem’s jazz legacy alive in both academic and entertaining ways. Programs include exhibits, discussion panels, and great music.Harlem Hospital WPA Murals, 506 Lenox Avenue (also known as Malcolm X Boulevard). This online exhibit chronicles the fascinating 1930s murals created under the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and their ongoing restoration.Of course visitors to New York can savor Black History Month through many other events, venues, tours and eateries by contacting Harlem One Stop.
