Writer-photographer Camilo José Vergara's deeply personal Harlem: The Unmaking of a Ghetto is an unprecedented record of urban change. Vergara, a MacArthur fellow, will talk about the neighborhood he chronicled for 43 years, documenting segregation, poverty, and crime, and eventually, economic recovery, gentrification, and racial integration. Eric Washington, author of Manhattanville: Old Heart of West Harlem; Phil Bicker, senior photo editor at Time; and Sharon Zukin, professor of sociology at the Graduate Center, join in the discussion. Co-sponsored by the Gotham Center for New York City History.
