Harlem
A Beacon On The Hill

A Virtual Experience

Thursday – Saturday, November 19th – 21st
12PM – 6PM EST

In November 2020 – at the conclusion the 2020 celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance – Harlem World Magazine will host its 1st Annual HWM Summit, with the theme Harlem: A Beacon On The Hill, designed to spark new ideas and conversation around the arts, business, philanthropy, history, faith, and community.

 

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.

 

This includes a crown sourcing campaign for the Harlem Youth Publishing Empowerment (HYPE) program in collaboration with Columbia University in Harlem where we recruit and train Harlem’s next generation of publishers.
