Religions of Harlem

Religions of Harlem is the first web-based effort to publicly document the religious life of the Harlem neighborhood of New York. With the help of Columbia University students, and under the guidance of Professors Obery Hendricks and Josef Sorett, Religions of Harlem uses diverse media to provide a unique view of the wide range of religious expressions, leaders, and communities that have been and continue to be central to the cultural worlds of Harlem. In the blog section of our site, students in the Religions of Harlem course at Columbia University use photos, videos, and audio recordings to bring to life various locations throughout Harlem.

In addition to reaching audiences through the world wide web and reaching students through the classroom, Religions of Harlem sponsors public events and forums.
