Reclaiming Black Spaces

Reclaiming Black Spaces – Virtual Tour with the Tenement Museum

As a museum that tells stories of migration and American identity, we must continue to uncover stories that have been historically excluded from the larger stories of the United States.

In the Tenement Museum’s newest initiative, Reclaiming Black Spaces highlights stories of how Black and African Americans shaped the Lower East Side as they made homes, started businesses and formed communities. Who and where were the communities that drew Black New Yorkers to Lower Manhattan and how did they resist the racism that they faced?
