An immersive art and cultural experience in Harlem

The year 2020 is like no other.

It marks the celebration of four centennials in America -- Prohibition, the Jazz Age, the Harlem Renaissance, the Woman's Right to Vote and the 150th anniversary of the 15th amendment.

Our experience bridges these important time periods together. We begin at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the premier center of its kind in the world. We'll explore how Africans, forced to leave their homeland, came to both the Caribbean and the Americas through slavery. You will understand how they impacted food, music, popular culture and dance with exhibits, film or sound.

Their struggle made Harlem a center for social movements from the mid 1880s to the present.

We touch on the Trans Atlantic Slave trade, its impact on human relations between American-born citizens and immigrants at that time. We'll delve into the New Negro Movement, which sparked the modern civil rights movement in this country and explore depression-era exhibitions such as the recently restored WPA murals in Harlem Hospital. Together, we’ll discover how we can learn how to heal from the past to move towards a better future.

If you know that you will be in town for several days, book early so I can assist with an itinerary that can include a lindyhop or tap dance class and /or food tasting.

Savona is knowledgeable and brings along the skills of a person who has researched and is well versed not only about African Americans but the general history of America. Her personality makes the tour even more exciting and we even got to connect on general social issues impacting both our countries. We really loved and enjoyed Harlem

WOW. Savona was so informative, passionate, articulate and thoughtful. I feel that with every vacation it's important to have a history component and this was perfect for that because she is a wealth of knowledge. If you're interested in Harlem history, Jazz history, black history and culture, architecture, literature, 20th-century history, or simply demystifying this corner of the world for yourself, this is the tour for you. I left feeling inspired. A+ experience
