Yesterday we drove, today we walked. On Thursday Congressman Charles Rangel led a caravan from Harlem to Inwood. Today we accompanied Rangel as he walked across Harlem’s 125th Street, from St. Nicholas Avenue to Lexington Avenue. He received a good welcome, greeted warmly by many as he strolled through his home turf.
Rangel, a Frederick Douglass High School graduate, encountered a group of Frederick Douglass Academy students and promptly launched into what appeared to a school song.
Update – Walking:
Here’s a look at Rangel’s reception, with a post-walk conversation with Rangel.
