Brother and Sister Return to Harlem

I have a friend who claims that if you want to study African American culture, you must take a trip to Harlem. This area in the Northern part of Manhattan is rich in a history that celebrates African American culture through its musicians, theater companies, museums, art galleries, clothing boutiques, library, and dance companies.
Well my mother and her brother are natives of Harlem USA. On Saturday, October 3, 2009, my husband, sister, Mom, and Uncle piled in a car and drove down the streets that were once very familiar to them. Brother and sister were delighted to see Harlem returning to the beauty that it once had, and were full of stories on how things used to be. Of course we drove past the world famous Apollo theater where they previously saw shows for less than a dollar.
