Harlem: The Unmaking of a Ghetto
Elebash Recital Hall, The Graduate Center, CUNY

Writer-photographer Camilo José Vergara’s deeply personal Harlem: The Unmaking of a Ghetto is an unprecedented record of urban change. Vergara, a MacArthur fellow, will talk about the neighborhood he chronicled for 43 years, documenting segregation, poverty, and crime, and eventually, economic recovery, gentrification, and racial integration. Eric K. Washington, author of Manhattanville: Old Heart of West Harlem; Phil Bicker, senior photo editor at Time; and Sharon Zukin, professor of sociology at The Graduate Center, join in the discussion. MUST RSVP. Follow the link.
