Harlem World Talks

Before there were Facebook and Twitter, e-mail, and cell phones, there was a real-time, face-to-face conversation where ideas were presented, positions debated, solutions brainstormed.

Beyond our website, Harlem World Magazine offers Harlem World Talks Events, a suite of free events designed to promote public discourse and civic engagement throughout Harlem. It’s our attempt to bring people together in real-virtual-time to learn, engage, and renew.

Our events include:


Harlem World Talks

A series of talks featuring leaders, legends, and trailblazers in Harlem. Harlem World Magazine also hosts talks around key Harlemwide issues that directly relate to the community.

These in-depth and thoughtful discussions are moderated by Harlem World Magazine staff, partners, and associations. We cover the most pressing issues facing the community, and questions related to these will be constant throughout the yearlong series. Preceding the discussion, coffee is served, allowing time for our distinguished and influential guests to mingle. Panelists include electeds, set over lunch in their own communities, unscripted, in front of their constituents, and include a Q&A time period for audience participation.

A Q&A session follows the discussion and allows our audience an additional chance to participate. Admission is free.


Harlem World Magazine Summit

We will feature talks, panels and workshops with today’s leaders, legends, and trailblazers of the Harlem community and beyond. We will discuss the topics that bind our communities together as well as what we need to do to move forward and upward in these turbulent times. This summit is a platform designed to generate ideas, bring people together, and spark change for good –to build a stronger community for all.
