How Well Do You Know Harlem?

Randolph Mase Blogging Tips 2

       One of the categories on Jeopardy! recently was “President Clinton’s Harlem.”  Perfect for my blog – here are the answers (read by President Clinton on the show); just come up with the correct question for each.  I’ll post the questions in a few days:

  1. After World War I Harlem was the center of a literary movement known as the “Harlem” this; a European one took place from the 14th to the 17th centuries.
  2. The Great Depression saw many people coming to Harlem, including this man who would become the first black mayor of New York City.
  3. Ben E. King and my friend Aretha Franklin have sung of this “Harlem” area north of 96th Street, historically associated with NYC’s large Puorto Rican population..
  4. After Martin Luther King Jr.’s death, Arthur Mitchell, the first black dancer in the New York City Ballet, opened this troupe in a garage on 152nd Street.
  5. In January 2012 President Obama sang a bit of “Let’s Stay Together” in tribute to Al Green at this famous Harlem venue.
