Thank you for visiting I, Too, Arts Collective.
We leased the Harlem brownstone where Langston Hughes lived and created the last twenty years of his life from 2016 - 2019. Founded by writer Renée Watson, our mission was to build upon Hughes' legacy by nurturing voices from underrepresented communities in the creative arts. We did this through commemorating, preserving, and activating the historic site with dynamic literary and cultural arts programming for established and youth writers alike. Though we are no longer in that physical space, we invite you to join us in reflecting on the community of artists, educators and neighbors we had the opportunity to convene and collaborate with. Please visit this digital space frequently, as we will share updates and special announcements around the release of our archive.
Through the archive, our aim is to show an interior look into the collective through its movements in community engagement and space making.
