In my thesis I am trying to concentrate on Harlem and the ghetto itself from its emergence and Dutch origin until today. I need to state that I am going to focus on Central or Black Harlem which area does not include the Spanish Harlem and which is bordered by the 110` hStreet in the north, by the Third Avenue in the East, by the River Harlem in the Northeast and by St. Nicholas Morningside and Manhattan Avenue in the west. The original Haarlem in Holland means something to Haarlem dwellers only, but this Harlem I am going to talk about is not only a home to many New York blacks-and rather fewer Puerto Ricans and Italians —but a universal word of fear, same and other emotions. In the first chapter of my work I am going to introduce through what process and events did New Amsterdam become New York and that how this underdeveloped city grew to one of the biggest and most populated metropolis in the world. Then, in the second chapter, I intend to talk about the development of Harlem from the original plans to its becoming the most populated and overcrowded area in the USA. In the third chapter I am writing about the result of the birth of the ghetto and about the despair and hopes many Harlem residents live in. I am trying to introduce how they are able to maintain a sense of community within the area while working for better living conditions, higherlevelled education and safer streets. The fourth chapter deals with the `birth of Black culture' namely the Harlem Renaissance including musicians, writers, poets, artists and their works. I am trying to give a foretaste of the huge amount of literary works created between the 1920s and 1940s and of the events preceding this literary movement. The fifth chapter summarises the achievements and situation of black people from the 1960s and mainly concentrates on the different factors which would finally lead to the solution of discrimination. My last chapter or the conclusion gives a review on my whole thesis pointing out the possible solutions to eliminate prejudice and racism in the USA.
