About Black Gotham Experience:
Established in 2010 by artist/historian Kamau Ware, Black Gotham Experience (BGX) is an immersive visual storytelling project that celebrates the impact of the African Diaspora on New York City since 1625. BGX reimagines the histories of the places directly impacted by the African Diaspora as human stories through interactive walking tours, a developing series of photography-based graphic novels, and events. The heart of this experience are three stories that revisit Manhattan in 1623 and move forward through three centuries: Other Side of Wall Street, Caesar’s Rebellion, and Citizen Hope.
