I love Harlem, have lived there, and have always had a passion for the people, culture, and history there. So naturally, I jumped at the chance to interview Carolyn Johnson, creator of Harlem-Opoly, an exciting board game based on the Harlem Renaissance, which includes some of the famous personalities and landmarks Harlem, from Josephine Baker to the Apollo Theater.
Carolyn is also President and Founder of Welcome to Harlem, focusing on the rich history and cultural diversity of Harlem, and also Harlem Roots, which teaches kids about Harlem’s history. In this clip, we talk about Carolyn’s passion for Harlem, what has encouraged its resurgence, and she gives us a quick history lesson into this fascinating part of NYC.
