Join poet Cyrus Aaron and artist and historian Kamau Ware, founder of the Black Gotham Experience, on a walk that explores a neighborhood defined by flux.

About

Artist and historian Kamau Ware will lead participants on a 90-minute journey through Fort Greene, traversing both physical space and time, informed by the often unseen stories of Black residents from the 19th century to the present. These walks are part of the larger project Who is Fort Greene? which offers an interlocking set of artistic experiments that create a visual story about this area. Along with poetry by Cyrus Aaron, Ware uses historical research and interviews with contemporary and once residents as source material for walks, photographic portraits, a poem cycle, video, and public discussion, all engaging with the title’s central question.
