Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 9th. at 7:00 PM HNBA will welcome Michael Lythcott attend to explain the new National Black Theater building project that will replace the former building on 5th Avenue between 125/126.
This large new cultural center and residence will be a major landmark in our community. Learn more about the project, the theater, the residences, and much, much more.
(Note that Michael had been unable to attend an earlier HNBA meeting due to a scheduling conflict but is now excited about presenting the project to us on November 9th)
In addition to the National Black Theater, we will also have representatives from the NYC Department of Health’s Rat team who will talk about how we can all best deal with the rats who’ve also been profoundly impacted by changes stemming from our behavior during COVID, as well as the recent storms/flooding.
Lastly, we’ll have representatives from Chelton Loft, which is located on East 126th Street between Park and Lex. They serve people with mental illness and run a strong program that includes wellness classes, job placement and cooking vegetables from our farmers market.
It’s a great lineup, and we hope to see you there. If you’d like to attend, make sure to subscribe to this newsletter:
Because of scheduling issues, the first HNBA meeting of the season will be held on Thursday, September 16th, at 7:00 PM. We’ve decided to continue to gather on Zoom at least until December because of the threat that the Delta Variant poses to our community.
At our September 16th meeting, HNBA will host Kristin Richardson Jordan at 7:00 PM to talk about her historic upset of the Harlem machine, her plans for City Council District 9, the upcoming November election, and what she means by Radical Love for Harlem.
