Before starting Gallery 98, Marc H. Miller was the founder of Ephemera Press, a publishing company that specialized in pictorial maps and walking tours of New York’s historic neighborhoods. The first publication, Harlem Renaissance, has long been out-of-print but recently we discovered a few copies from the original 2001 printing. Two of these are now available on Gallery 98.
The Harlem map and its accompanying four-page walking-tour booklet identify sites associated with a wide range of achievers: artists, writers, musicians, dancers, theater personalities, sports stars, entrepreneurs, explorers, thinkers, religious leaders and political activists. Among those included are Alvin Ailey, Marian Anderson, James Baldwin, Romare Bearden, W.E.B. DuBois, Katherine Dunham, Duke Ellington, Ralph Ellison, Marcus Garvey, Althea Gibson, W.C. Handy, Billie Holiday, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Jacob Lawrence, Joe Louis, Thurgood Marshall, Malcolm X, Adam Clayton Powell Jr., Paul Robeson, Augusta Savage, James Van Der Zee, Madam C. J. Walker, and many others.
