The “I Am Harlem” mural celebrates Harlem past, present, and future, and features art direction by Harlem’s own Aleathia Brown. Made possible by the SAFE in Harlem Coalition and Harlem’s teens, special thanks also go out to the Pillars Recovery Center, Infinity Mennonite Church, Felecia Pullen, Rev. Al Taylor, Marissa Molina, Nico Collazo, and Harlem Village Academies High School.
