Review:

Back in print after years of unavailability, this is the companion to a controversial documentary exhibit that appeared at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1969. Harlem on My Mind (the title comes from the novel by writer Claude McKay) includes hundreds of photographs (many by the celebrated James VanDerZee) of the famous, like Duke Ellington or Malcolm X, as well as of anonymous Harlemites in bars, restaurants, rooming houses and on the street. This edition includes a new foreword by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., as well as a new introduction by Allon Shoener explaining the genesis of the exhibit.

About the Author:

His books include New York: An Illustrated History of the People, The Italian Americans, and The American Jewish Album. He lives in Hudson, New York. Democratic Congressman Charles B. Rangel represents the Fifteenth Congressional District of New York. He lives in Harlem.
