"Harlem's Mart 125: The American Dream" & panel [Harlem Homegrown]
Harlem's Mart 125: The American Dream
Dir. Rachelle Salnave, 2010, 75 min.
Mart 125, formerly located in the heart of Harlem was an indoor market place that housed African vendors from all over the Diaspora. It was developed by government agencies to remove street vendors in the mid-1980s. Due to a host of politics, poor management and the redevelopment of Harlem, the Mart was forced to close down in 2002. The building is now up for biding and the vendors have either been fortunate enough to get their own store fronts in Harlem or are back to vending on the streets. Harlem's Mart 125: The American Dream is an in-depth analysis of the history of Mart 125 and how it correlates to the "revitalization" of 125th street, Harlem's main commercial hub. This story depicts the economic transition from the late 1960s to present day. By using Mart 125 and the people behind it, the market provides an apt metaphor for the effects of gentrification on the Harlem community and urban centers everywhere.

Panel discussion with Loren Schoenberg, Executive Director of the National Jazz Museum Harlem, Gregory Gates and Moikgantsi Kama, Founders of Imagenation (two organizations that won the bid to redevelop the Mart 125 space) and filmmaker, Rachelle Salnave. More speakers to be announced.

This month's installment of Maysles Cinema's ongoing series, "Harlem Homegrown," films made for Harlem, by Harlem.
