Busboys and Poets Books presents Author Farah Griffin
Harlem in the 1940s was a vibrant and glamorous neighborhood brimming with creativity and activism. Rife with peer collaboration, the neighborhood was fueled by the influx of millions of black Southerners who came north during the Second Great Migration. They served as both the subject and audience for groundbreaking political and artistic expression of all types. Petry, Primus, and Williams, in particular, were artists who embodied Harlem’s spirit of creative work with a social conscience. Griffin writes about these three women as individuals and as representatives of a singular time and place.
Books for this event will be available for purchase at Busboys and Poets Books located inside the restaurant.
