Harlem Roots is the student educational arm of Welcome to Harlem, a walking tour company. While doing walking tours with students Welcome to Harlem realized that a large amount of the material being covered in the tour was not being taught to the students. So, they dedicated to fill the void with Harlem Roots. Harlem has a rich multicultural history that is significant to African-Americans, but the neighborhood also holds great importance for other cultures as well. Keeping this diversity in mind, we’ve made sure our lessons tap into all cultural backgrounds.

It’s the undying passion of our team at Welcome to Harlem that has kept us running and enabled us to provide high quality educational tours, reading comprehension lessons, and live jazz concerts for students with Harlem Jazz Boxx. Beginning with the small Dutch village from which Harlem derives its name and first settlers, to the cultural significance of the Harlem Renaissance, and continuing throughout decades filled with important African-American history and more.
