Harlem CORE: as told in two parts

This exhibit focuses on the two major phases of Harlem CORE, pre-Black Power and post Black Power.

When the chapter first came to Harlem in 1961, they were a civil rights organization, commited to integration and non-violence.

After 1966, when the civil rights movement transformed into the Black power movement, Harlem CORE embraced self determination and a right to use violence in self-defense. White members of Harlem CORE were eventually pushed out and formally excluded.

 

Harlem CORE (pre-1966)

This section of the exhibit focuses on items that pertain to Harlem CORE before 1966. It contains photos illustrating the presence of White members and integrated couples. It also contains photos of leaders, the CORE logo used at the time, and National CORE documents used as propaganda.

 

 

Harlem CORE (post 1966)

This section of the exhibit contains items that pertain to Harlem CORE as a Black Power organization. It contains documents relating to their education proposals, photos of leaders and members as well as the CORE logo for that time period.
