The Streets of Harlem: How Black Men in The Streets Adapt to Structural Violence explores the lived experiences of street life oriented black men, across generations, in Harlem NYC. One of the topics covered in this documentary is gentrification and to what extent Black men in the streets experience gentrification in Harlem.

The 129th Block Party in August of 2011 highlights how old and new residents came together to celebrate Harlem and especially their block. Old and new residents struggled but worked together to organize 129th between 7th and Lenox Ave, in a day of celebration.

Some of the guests who spoke and performed included, Representative Charles Rangel, Council Member Inez Dickins and Assemblyman Keith Wright in addition to various representatives of institutions, non-profit organizations, shopkeepers among others.

The very concept of Black men in the streets of Harlem is in the process of permanently changing. You can easily find a set of blocks still caught up with the challenges of the streets—juxtaposed to a set of blocks that have been newly gentrified.

What will Harlem look like in 10 -- 15 years?

This video street ethnography project was organized by Dr. Yasser Arafat Payne, associate professor in the Department of Black American Studies at the University of Delaware, music producer/video director Scott 'Kasper' Gaddy and Ronald Shuler.
