To create our video about Black culture in NYC, we curated a range of images from across the five boroughs that you can see on the page below. With shots including those taken at Black-owned businesses and during the City’s festivals and parades, as well as at recent Black Lives Matter marches, these photographs offer a look at the energy and diversity of NYC’s Black community. For more information, read on, and visit The Black Experience in NYC for videos, stories, guides and other content.
