I was disturbed by this recent cover of New York Magazine.  It initially invoked anger, sadness, frustration and disbelief to name a few.    

However it is important to look beyond the hate and the fear.  To focus on the momentousness of this time in history.  To focus on the future.

Those of us who live or work or play in Harlem are helping to create that future.  One that is rooted in a storied past.  One in which new stories of positive change are happening every second of every day and in part chronicled by our blog.

It’s been said that a tree grows in Brooklyn.  

Let it be said that Hope is Harlem (TM).
