Celebrating Heroes of the Pandemic and social justice — this series spotlights the people making a difference in our community from the front lines of Heath and Environment, Community Groups, Harlem Resources, Religion, Youth and Education, and Art and Culture through tribute posts on social media and in local press coverage.


It builds on our 20-year effort to highlight people and institutions that have made Harlem blossom and reflects the response to an illness that has disproportionately struck Black and Brown communities. Meet 38 remarkable honorees.
