We are proud to present these lively, intimate, and animated conversations with heroes
from our Harlem Is. . . Healing series that have brought hope to a community affected by
the pandemic and issues of social justice. Healing Dialogues offer a platform for
community members to reconnect, reflect, and share ideas about Harlem as we
collectively reemerge and heal.
In 2021 we produced four episodes of healing dialogues, and in 2022 we will launch eight
more dynamic conversations with Harlem community members whose lives and work
reflect a deep commitment to personal and social renewal. To help keep the conversation
going after you view the video, we have created discussion prompts and curriculum
activities for educators and community groups to explore. New discussion materials will
be added to the discussion guide as new episodes are released.
Healing Dialogues is a part of the Harlem is...Healing Heroes of Pandemic and Social Justice project. Engage with the full series HERE.
