Our project seeks to recognize, document and share the history of education in Harlem. Our work grows in collaboration among students, scholars, community members and organizations, technologists, and archivists.
In this under-development digital collection, we offer published and unpublished archival material and oral histories alongside interpretive exhibits. We also document our project's work.
Our first group of digitized sources and exhibits emphasize the experiences and work of students in Harlem schools in the 1940s through the 1970s. Our first featured school is Harlem's Wadleigh.
