Nova Felder—a Pan-African teacher on a mission

Nova and Amara Felder
If you have ever walked on 125th Street between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, just across from the Apollo Theater, in Harlem, you might have seen the graphic lynching pictures showing how whites terrorized the Black community during the segregation era. You see the Black bodies swinging as a white crowd looks on in awe. Or you see Black people crying in pain as they were being blasted with a fire hose. Or you see a burnt Black corpse or a body that has been beaten up until the person became unrecognizable. Nova M. Felder hangs these photos on daily basis to give people a reminder of a segment of fairly recent African-American history.
