    110th Street Hullabaloo

    written by Alicia R. Hendrix

    Inspired by the rhyming poetry of “Sugar Hill:  Harlem’s Historic Neighborhood ” by Carole Boston Weatherford

    Take the A Train down to busy streets
    Where the blues and rhythm can’t be beat,
    Where mothers and fathers laugh, work, and play,
    And artists paint and dance all day.

    Harlem’s the place for the mind to thrive
    For black families to flourish, not just survive.

    Join Playtime Poppy as we explore rhythm and rhyme in New York City’s most famous African-American neighborhood, and the golden years of the Harlem Renaissance.
