Karen Taborn - Self-Representation in Harlem Renaissance Arts



"Self-Representation in Harlem Renaissance Arts"


As part of the Harlem 2032 activities on campus this spring, Karen Taborn, author of Walking Harlem: The Ultimate Guide to the Cultural Capital of Black America (Rutgers Univ. Press, 2018), will speak on Tuesday, April 2, at 12:30 p.m. in Shepard Hall 306.

This event will also be hosted virtually via Zoom:

A resident of Harlem, New York for over 40 years, Karen Taborn began her research on the community in the early 1990s as the historical consultant for The Strivers Center project—a consortium of professionals gathered by the Harlem Chamber of Commerce to acknowledge the rich history of Harlem culminating in the creation of the Harlem Walk-of-Fame on West 135th Street between Adam Clayton Powell (Seventh Avenue) and Frederick Douglass Boulevard (Eighth Avenue) in Harlem. Taborn taught Harlem history in the 1990s at the New School (now the New School University) in New York City and she currently gives talks and tours on and in the community of Harlem.
Taborn holds double master's degrees in jazz (NYU, 1987) and in ethnomusicology (Hunter College, 2006). To learn more about Karen Taborn's work in Harlem, visit her website at
