What we’ll do

Experience a one-of-a-kind history tour through Harlem's public art, via a leisurely bike ride. We'll meet at a shop to rent bicycles (or bring your own) and tour through Harlem to see great sculptures of historic black figures, from Frederick Douglass to Harriet Tubman to Malcolm X to Duke Ellington. At each one, after a brief introduction, the statue will be "reanimated" with the audio playback…
