Tuesday, October 25th, 7:00PM, Mapping Harlem’s Heyday, at The National Jazz Museum in Harlem, 58 West 129th Street just east of Lenox Avenue.  Elmer Simms Campbell drew a vibrantly brilliant map of Harlem nightspots in 1932 for Manhattan magazine. A pioneering African-American illustrator, he created a stirring image at once well-informed and devoid of the period’s racist clichés. Hear the music made in those clubs while learning invaluable background information from Harlem experts.  $10.00 Suggested Donation
