This week, we’ll take a field trip to an important community institution in Harlem, “Clarke House”, named in honor of the great Pan-African scholar and former Hunter College profesor Dr. John Henrik Clarke and run by the Board of Education for People of African Ancestry (BEPAA). Class meets offsite at the Clarke House: 286 Convent Ave (near 141 St.) Manhattan. It’s accessible by the A,B,C, and D trains to 145th St; B,C trains to 135th; 1 train to 137th and Broadway; or M100, 101 buses, which stop a block away on Amsterdam Avenue. (Convent Ave is between Amsterdam and St. Nichloas Aves. The lettered trains run on St. Nick)
Class will start promptly at 6:30 to allow you enough time to get downtown. Please be on time!
