HARLEM IS HEALING LOGO.png

Celebrating Heroes of the Pandemic and social justice — this series spotlights the people making a difference in our community from the front lines of medicine, to work in the arts, education, food service, religious life and environmentalism 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 12 remarkable honorees below and learn about the others on Instagram/harlemishealing/
