CULTURE COMMERCE COMMUNITY
The Harlem Parade initiative launched via HARLEMPARADE.ORG on September 17, 2020
with an innovative protest art video - Black Parade Harlem.
Led by Harlem native and principal dancer for Beyoncé, Dnay Baptiste, and Founder and Creative Director
of Creative Jenius Report, CJ South, the Harlem Parade initiative is a network of Harlem-based creatives
that produce unique content and event activations to celebrate Harlem’s rich arts community, amplify
Harlem’s Black-owned businesses, and promote civic engagement.
Driven by three pillars of purpose- culture, commerce and community, we are committed to preserving Harlem’s cultural legacy, protecting Harlem’s Black commerce, and empowering Harlem’s thriving community.
