"I've looked all over for arts organizations that might prioritize new and cutting-edge work by artists of color, and Harlem Stage stands outs as one of the only presenters in the U.S. that makes this their goal. For the good work that Harlem Stage does, I am more than thankful."
–Vijay Iyer, Pianist, Composer, MacArthur Fellow
"To me the real strength of Harlem Stage is its dedication to the community. They want to really understand what makes artists do what they do."
–José James, Jazz Singer
"We love you for your unfailing support of brilliant revolutionary artists of color who too often face merciless rejection from the outside world."
–Henry Grimes, Jazz Bassist and his wife, Margaret Grimes
