Harlem Street Scene

Colorful screenprint depicting a variety of brown-skinned figures walking down a street. On the left, a man in blue carries a stringed instrument; in the center, a man in black leaning on a red cane walks beside a child wearing white; a smaller child plays with chalk on the sidewalk. In the background, a woman wearing a yellow dress emerges from a doorway.
