BP Brewer Women’s History Month Celebration With Harlem’s Savona Bailey-McClain And More

March 28, 2021

On Monday, March 29, 2021, at 1 PM at the Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument at Central Park’s Literary Walk at 68th Street in Manhattan.

Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer will hold an event honoring Women’s History Month in New York City.

Featuring Monumental Women Board President Pam Elam, Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument sculptor Meredith Bergmann, and Savona Bailey-McClain of the West Harlem Art Fund and creator of the COVID Diaries POC Project.

COVID Diaries POC is an ongoing oral history project documenting the experiences of people of color during the pandemic in relation to COVID, the racial justice movement, and the election.

Part of the project is on “view” in the Museum of the City of New York’s “New York Responds” exhibit.

Savona was inspired to take on this project after the MBPO April 2020 historians’ meeting, where she learned about how lacking the documentation of the Spanish Flu pandemic was, especially for people of color.

Rob Snyder, Manhattan Borough Historian, encouraged historians to document the COVID pandemic through oral histories and with people of color.
