To kick off #BlackHistoryMonth, we spoke with Asha Futterman ’21 to learn about her three-year journey as a researcher with BCRW and how it allowed her to delve deeper into the history of Black women through projects like Radical Black Women of Harlem: A Walking Tour. Co-created by Futterman and Mariame Kaba, the tour highlights some of the Black women icons who contributed to the social, cultural, and political evolution of Harlem in the 20th century.
“The Radical Black Women of Harlem tour was definitely the most fun and intensive project I did at BCRW. I loved it so much because I learned about history and radical organizing that was centered in the place where I lived. It was really powerful to understand that so many women who have done amazing things, that still impact my life years and years later, may have lived right around the corner from me.”
