In partnership with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, CMOM explores the Harlem Renaissance from the 1920s through the 1940s with historic artifacts, archival film footage and interactive stations, broken into three main sections. First, kids can explore a mock jazz club, where they'll listen to Ella Fitzgerald and test out a 1930's-style microphone; then, head into a theater devoted to tap legend Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and try out some of his signature moves on a staircase. Afterwards, there'll be a ballroom that features the music of Duke Ellington. Daily live performances and workshops accompany the exhibit. Ages 4 and up.
