We love the recordings from the Harlem Cultural Archives, and here’s another one. Camille Billops and Jim Hatch were professors at the City College of New York in Manhattan Community District 9 in Harlem, Camille in Art and Jim in English – when they ramped up their “Artists and Influences” oral history project. The project consists of over 400 interviews with Romaire Beardon, Amiri Baraka, “Dizzy” Gillespie, Owen Dodson, Toni Morrison, James VanDerZee and a host of other major players on the cultural landscape.
