What does it mean to create space for reflection and visioning? What does it mean to know your past, present and future? What does it mean to know that you are more than enslaved people? Harlem Needle Arts is pleased to present We the People | Disrupting Silence, a public art installation that pays tribute to the ingenuity, creativity and sacrifices of Africans of the Diaspora, who suffered the atrocity of enslavement, marginalization and disenfranchisement. This installation by Alex Reynoso joins Nacinimod Deodee’s A Long Walk to Freedom and Reflection on the opposite side of the park.

This project is presented by Harlem Needle Arts.
