Harlem 100

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2019

Venue Matthews Theatre

OVERVIEW

100 years after one of the most culturally-significant periods in human history, Harlem is in the midst of a resurging creative movement sparked by the centenarian embers left by the wildfire that was the Harlem Renaissance. The Harlem Renaissance has since proven to be an unrivaled period of brilliance in both profound intelligent expression and preeminent entertainment.

Created in collaboration with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, this multi-media show captures the sights and sounds of Harlem when legendary artists such as Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Langston Hughes, and Billie Holiday made Harlem the cultural center of the country. Hosted by Michael Mwenso, Harlem 100 presents the most exciting Harlem musicians.

Featuring the music of Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters as well as a 9 piece band with 3 dancers, Harlem 100 celebrates one of the most influential artistic movements of our country and gives insight into Harlem then and now.
