Harlem Arts Alliance

Dancers at Harlem Arts Alliance


Recently, I had the privilege of joining other artists featured in the Harlem Arts Alliance’s festival on Oct. 22, 2011, at the Richard Rogers Amphitheater at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem.  The event was part talent show, part artist appreciation and hosted by the lovely Chia Schonberg of the radio show,”Morning Influence.” Performing and visual artists came together for the day to celebrate music, dance, poetry and a true respect for the community. Among the talent: wordsmith Lovelle A. Clark, vocalist Lee Olive Tucker,  an exceptionally vibrant rapper, R.E.A.L., Kyra Climbingbear, eight-year-old Lil Man of Brooklyn and the winner of the overall talent showcase, Charisa Rouse (The Violin Diva). It was an honor to share some of my photography amid a choice display of artistry and showmanship on stage. Hats off to Harlem Arts Alliance for recognizing its community and providing a necessary creative outlet.
