Home > News & Updates > Harlem Heritage Project Launches

November 16, 2007. CCNMTL, in partnership with Professor Manning Marable, launched the Harlem Heritage Project this week. The project's Web site, built for Marable's course Harlem's Heritage: A Community History, 1900 to the Present, contains archival videos documenting and depicting Harlem, a custom-assembled movie collection that charts shifting representations of Harlem throughout the 20th century, and a growing repository of lectures by scholars invited to participate in Dr. Marable's seminar. The site also collates Harlem-related resources produced in previous CCNMTL projects, and draws from Columbia University Libraries' Special Collections holdings such as the Alexander Gumby collection and interviews conducted by Columbia's Oral History Research Office.

The Harlem Heritage Project is a part of CCNMTL's Digital Bridges initiative. To read more, view our project portfolio.
