Residents of Harlem should be aware that there is a petition to co-name 134th street between Adam Clayton Powell Blvd and Malcolm X Blvd “Hubert Harrison Way” Hubert Harrison is known as “The Father of Harlem Radicalism” and made many contributions to the political scene of Harlem in the early 20th century.
If you want a copy of the petition, go here. To find out more about Hubert Harrison, visit the website of Prof. Jeffrey B. Perry. He is the author a major work on the radical thinker, and has done a great deal of work in unearthing the memory of this obscured Black historical figure.
