As Bertholdi's Statue of George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette at Morningside Avenue and 114th Street will attest, Harlem and America have had a long alliance with the French that dates back to the Revolutionary War.  In decades to follow Harlem would return the favor, sending the "Harlem Hellfighters," as soldiers to fight, along with Jazz and culturally talented artists, like Josephine Baker, Romare Bearden and James Baldwin.  In celebration of Harlem Bastille Day, Sugar Hill Market vendor John Reddick returns with his great collection of posters, with an added accent on Harlem and the French.

Harlem Bastille Day will held this Sunday, July 13th at 127th and St. Nicholas Avenue from Noon to 6:00PM
