Nerdy Thursdays is a signature Black Gotham Experience event that originated in New York City’s historic Seaport District in spring 2017. This series was originally conceived by Kamau Ware and William Ellis as a book club mixer but has evolved into a celebrated space for creative entrepreneurial nerds with established elements including a reading room, revolving DJs, curated panels, vibrant hosts, signature cocktails, and soulful bites. Think of a contemporary spin on the early Harlem Renaissance salons but downtown. Each event has a theme as the focal point for discussion such as entrepreneurship, cinema, food, hip hop, or education. Join us for our next Nerdy Thursdays.


Please note that because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our spring season of Nerdy Thursdays that was supposed to start on May 7th is on pause. You can find out first how and when we convene next by subscribing to our newsletter.
