HARLEM is not SoHa

This petition had 132 supporters

I believe an effort to rebrand Central Harlem as SoHa is for profit. It is arrogant and disrespectful and an affront to generations of Harlem residents. This section of Harlem was the focal point of the Harlem Renaissance which began in the 1920s and was an unprecedented outpouring of American Black music, dance, theater and literature whose impact on the world was vast and has continued unabated. 

I ask that all residents of our community and our elected officials to reject the attempts to rename any section of Central Harlem SoHa and to clearly voice their objection to such attempts and to similar attempts to rename or rebrand other sections of Harlem.
