Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership’s Black Artstory Month

Walking Tour

This self-guided walking tour focuses on a handful of African-American artists who called Fort Greene or Clinton Hill home while they were at the height of their artistic careers.  This tour will explore the lives of eight different artists who worked in a variety of fields, from music to painting to literature, from the Civil War through the 1990s.  Some of the artists were born and raised in the neighborhood, while others migrated here, drawn by the area’s vibrant community of Black artists.

Beyond their neighborhood and race, each of these artists share a common thread: They dedicated their lives to honing artistic talents and creating something new to share with the world.

The area of Brooklyn that you will explore during this walking tour holds close to 400 years of Black history.
