This map-poster-guide shows the homes, nightclubs, churches and other sites associated with Harlem's writers, artists, musicians, thinkers, and political leaders. Featuring portraits and drawings of buildings and streets, this illustrated map makes a beautiful poster suitable for framing. The back of the map provides addresses and an easy-to-follow walking tour of Harlem.

The Harlem Renaissance Map is more than an attractive wall poster. It also contains a well-researched walking-tour guide to Harlem's historic sites. The itinerary includes sixty-one of the neighborhood's most interesting spots; each is briefly described, and clearly located on a secondary map specifically designed for those visiting Harlem. The walking-tour guide is printed on the back of folded Harlem maps. Unfolded posters and framed maps come with a separate four-page booklet containing the walking-tour information.
