Harlem

Only a 10 minute ride away from my hotel, I was excited to check out Harlem, where my BFF Tyrik lives.  He took me on a walking tour of the neighborhood and i got to see the Apollo Theater!!  We ate at the famous Sylvia’s where we were serenaded during gospel brunch. I ate (and ate) smothered pork chops.  Mind you, this was my third brunch of the day because i had been in sessions and meetings all morning, but somehow i found the room in my stomach-it was heavenly!!  We then walked to the beautiful Columbia campus, where Ty goes to school. My fave part about Harlem were the amazing murals, monuments, and tributes dedicated to folks who bravely fought for social justice before me, and inspire the work that i continue today.
