Harlem Renaissance

The Abyssinian Development Corporation (ADC) is celebrating the groundbreaking for the Harlem Renaissance Ballroom complex on Friday. Sheena Wright, president and CEO of the ADC, explains why they fought landmark status for the historic Renaissance Ballroom and Casino. Michael Henry Adams, Harlem historian and the author of Harlem: Lost and Found (Monacelli Press, 2001) argues that Harlem deserves more landmarked buildings.
