Above is a collage of of the walking tour of Harlem and the class trip to the Met. You can see different images and art like cups and combs created by African Americans. Black culture is being represented in a positive way by showing how they contributed to the art. Also in the video you see a Zora Neale Hurston cup and these different plates which looks very wealthy. It really shows the black experience in a good way, sometimes you would think shedding light on black culture and their experience would be about slavery and the bad things that happened to them. But the museum documents what black culture is and how their experiences helped impact the world.
