Thank you for your Black Gotham tour. I had a great time and grasped knowledge on black history that I wasn’t aware of. I really learned a lot, as I lacked knowledge and wasn’t taught at school. The walk was really educational and intriguing. I hope you continue with photography and Black Gotham.

Sincerely, Deandra

Thank you for giving us a wonderful tour. It really changed the way we view New York City and its untold black history. It also showed us that there is history behind the simplest things in our environment. Thank you again and good luck completing your graphic novel.

Sincerely, Leonard


The Black Gotham Experience was sparked by the question from a teenager in 2008. Help us give this multidimensional learning experience back to the youth. Thank you.
