Harlem Heritage Project

Harlem Heritage Project Partner(s): Manning Marable
Arts and Sciences

Access: Columbia only
Released: November 2007


The Harlem Heritage Project is an online resource that allows students to gather digital assets pertaining to their individual projects and presentations in Professor Manning Marable's graduate course, Harlem Heritage: A Community History, 1900 to the Present. Students in the course study Harlem's rich history through four lenses: Politics, Social Science, Deviance, Aesthetics and "othering." They are able to search, browse, collect, and edit the collection of videos, audio, images and text documents assembled especially for this seminar to support their multimedia presentations.

The Harlem Heritage Project is a Digital Bridges Initiative project.
