Summary: This episode is a map of Harlem night life illustrated by pioneering commercial artist E. Simms Campbell, the first African-American cartoonist to be published nationally (in Esquire, Cosmopolitan, The New Yorker and Playboy, among others). Originally published in 1932 for Manhattan Magazine, this map is focused on the area of Harlem just north of Central Park during both prohibition and what came to be known as the Harlem Renaissance.
