Mount Morris Talks!

And the Neighborhood is Poised to Listen.

Mount Morris Talks! logoSome 70 years ago, the Harlem Renaissance gained worldwide acclaim as the African American cultural and intellectual life began to flourish in NYC. MMPCIA is reviving those traditions in Mount Morris Talks! This 21st century take on the salons of the past is a series of conversations throughout the year that give members of the community a chance to hear from the leaders, news makers, artists, authors and thinkers who now call Harlem home and even share some stories of their own.

Says Patricia Eaton, founder of MMPCIA and organizer of the program,

“We have such a wealth of talent in our neighborhood and that has been a secret too well-kept. This is a special opportunity for those among us who are willing to share their stories, their experience and their insights. I am confident that Mount Morris Talks will enrich everyone who participates as well as provide invaluable role models for our young people.”

MMPCIA sponsors the series and offers it free of charge to the community.
