Offsite Activity: Traces, Places, Faces – Harlem Then and Now Tour (Pre-Registration Required)

Registered attendees should meet by the registration desk no later than 4:30PM. We will leave the hotel promptly at 4:30PM to take a bus to Harlem.

Join us for a “Traces, Places, Faces – Harlem Then and Now” tour hosted by Harlem One Stop. HarlemOne Stop is a community-based organization that is deeply involved in serving the interest of the community and preserving what makes great. Harlem All tour guides live in Harlem and are involved in the life of the community. They know all about Harlem’s history as well as Harlem as it is today.

The walking tour will highlight Harlem's social and cultural history, the Harlem Renaissance, contemporary neighborhood shifts and changes, and an overview of the world-renowned neighborhood for African American contributions to visual and literary arts, music and dance, and political discourse in the pursuit of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Key highlights of our walking tour include the Hamilton Heights Historic District, named for Alexander Hamilton, the Harlem School of the Arts, the Dorrance Brooks Historic District, the first historic district to be named for an African American, the Schomburg Center, the world’s largest repository of artifacts, art, and documents dedicated to African American culture, and more.

The duration of the walking tour will be approximately 1.5-2 hours. Comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing are recommended.

Transportation will be provided to and from the location and the conference hotel. At the end of the tour, participants will have the option to return directly back to the hotel or remain in Harlem for a self-organized dinner. Transportation will be provided for both. 

Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 50 attendees. 

Cost: $60 per person. Refunds won't be issued unless a registration can be transferred to another attendee.
