Many of New York City's parks and monuments honor African Americans who have shaped the landscape of our culture. Monuments and green spaces of all sizes, from Marcus Garvey Park in Manhattan to Hattie Carthan Community Garden in Brooklyn, pay tribute to the contributions and lives of notable African Americans from the 18th century to the 21st century. "Namesakes: Honoring African Americans in NYC Parks" is an exhibition of photographs that highlights a sampling of such namesakes throughout the city. This event is FREE and open to the public.
