The Department of Writing, Literature, and Languages facilitates a Fall 2022 series of events: Creative Harlem. Many scholars date the start of the Harlem Renaissance to 1922. This interdisciplinary series of events celebrates 100 years of Black creativity coming from Harlem. Join us at lectures, readings, walking tours, and film screenings.
Courses throughout the college are sponsoring events as part of the Creative Harlem Fall Series. These events are all open to anyone in the MMC community.
You can register for individual events on the sidebar of this page, or through MMC Engage.
