In this engaging lecture architect and historian, John Reddick will explore the colonial aesthetic in Harlem's early "modern" architecture, considering how it served as a backdrop to the jazz age. Discussing select local early twentieth-century designs, such as the Roger Morris Apartments and the Colonial Park & Pool, Reddick will place into context the architecture of Harlem and the work of African American architect, Vertner Tandy, and his residence for Madame Walker on 136th Street, known during the Renaissance as the "Dark Tower."

John Reddick has served as a curator and discussion leader for the Harlem Focus series at the Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt Design Center and has worked on several Harlem public space & art projects including Ralph Ellison Memorial, Harriet Tubman Square, and Frederick Douglass Circle. Reddick received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Ohio State University and a Master of Architecture from Yale University.
