Harlem Walking Tour: Dorothy Maynor
March 23, 12:00 pm - 12:10 pm
The Harlem Walking Tour video series is a set of very short videos (5-8 minutes each) that highlight historic artistic figures who either lived in or spent time in Harlem and how each person contributed to the vibrancy and rich cultural landscape that make Harlem what it is today. This also features some of Harlem’s renowned institutions, such as the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and the Harlem School of the Arts, among others. This series was conceived by husband and wife team, Terrance McKnight of WQXR and harpist-scholar Dr. Ashley Jackson.
The fourth episode of the Harlem Walk Tour Video Series features the American soprano, concert singer, and founder of the Harlem School of the Arts. Yolanda Wyns of Harlem School of the Arts leads the Dorothy Maynor Singers in a tribute to HSA’s founder.
