Easter Sunday April 5, 2015. Historian Michael Henry Adams stands across the street from the almost completely demolished Renaissance Ballroom and Casino at West 138th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard in Harlem, NY.
He was the lone protester that day against the ballrooms demolition. He see’s it as another loss of the Harlem community. He continually hollers out “save Harlem now”
