|Black Studies NYC Travelers, 2012|
As a group, we visited bookstores like Hue-Man in Harlem and the Strand in the Village, the Brooklyn Museum, Chinatown, Times Square, and the African Burial Ground. In smaller groups, our travelers visited over a dozen other venues.
Overall, the NYC experience gave our crew opportunities to walk and think in the city; to consider the gendered implications of nagivating a major metropolis; and to build, as our longtime contributor Kacee Aldridge put it, "exploratory confidence."
