Last week, the Significant Elders, a Harlem intergenerational program, was honored for the work it does bridging the gap between elders in the community and the younger generation through the artistic form of storytelling. On Nov. 14, the group received a special achievement award at Harlem Stage/Aaron Davis Hall.

The group of elders, who come from all walks of life, meets throughout the year at the Harriet Tubman Learning Center in Harlem. There, fourth and fifth graders interview them about their lives and the lessons they have learned. The group also participates in the Apollo Theater Oral History Project.

The Significant Elders program was created by the Rev. Malika Lee Whitney, of Pickney Productions, in 1995. For more information on the program or projects, contact Whitney at (212) 969-0079.
