HARLEM 100
Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance
Featuring Mwenso and the Shakes with special guests Brianna Thomas and Michela Lerman

100 years after one of the most culturally significant periods in human history, Harlem is in the midst of a resurging creative movement sparked by the centenarian embers left by the wildfire that was the Harlem Renaissance. The Harlem Renaissance has since proven to be an unrivaled period of brilliance in both profound intelligent expression and preeminent entertainment.

Created in collaboration with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, this multi-media show captures the sights and sounds of Harlem when legendary artists such as Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Langston Hughes and Billie Holiday made Harlem the cultural center of the country.  Hosted by Michael Mwenso, Harlem 100 presents the most exciting Harlem musicians and dancers in a modern variety show and pays homage to the presentations made famous in the Apollo Theater, the Cotton Club and other celebrated venues of the Harlem Renaissance.

Featuring the music of Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters as well as a 9-piece band with 3 dancers, Harlem 100 celebrates one of the most influential artistic movements of our country and gives insight into Harlem then and now.
