In this documentary, Harlem Nights: Seconds Renaissance, I am telling a story of The Harlem Nights Bar. Not only is Harlem Nights a historic landmark for black citizens in Harlem, but for all artists of different ethnic backgrounds. In my film I guide you through nights as a young stand up comedian working to earn his chops at the Paid by the bell open mic contest. As Harlem experiences its biggest rebirth since the original Harlem Renaissance. Just as Kwame Nkrumah witnessed African American art blossom in Harlem, I, Charles Kofi Tabi will do the same while bringing joy and laughter to Harlem.
