“I am the hopeful black woman who
was denied her right to vote.
I am the caring white supporter
killed on the front lines of freedom.
I am the unarmed black kid who
maybe needed a hand but was
instead given a bullet.
Selma has awakened
Selma is now.”
(* Common and John Legend Win the 2015 Golden Globe for Best Original Song – Motion Picture.)

About the Harlem Arts Festival
The Harlem Arts Festival is a free annual multidisciplinary event that showcases local performers and visual artists that inspire and nourish the artistic community in Harlem. The festival aims to promote arts education and literacy by implementing arts-related discussion forums, educational workshops, performance opportunities and activities for youth and family. This project is part of Harlem’s addition to the larger, citywide commitment to provide free art in the public parks during the spring and summer months. This year’s festival will take place on June 29th and June 30th at the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater in Marcus Garvey Park at 124th street between Lenox and Fifth Avenues.
