*Al Thompson is creating his own platform to share a new message with the world.

Using online media and getting a ticket to the web based series train, he’s going to let the world know about what Harlem has to offer.

Entitled “Lenox Avenue,” the series will showcase Harlem’s influential culture, the Huffington Post says.

The show focuses on three friends in New York that are forced to deal with the fast paced nature of the dating scene.

Thompson explains that his motivation behind choosing Harlem had everything to do with his upbringing, and the lack of acknowledgement among other series. He explained that many writers only give a certain perspective, and present Manhattan as a monocultural spot. But Harlem is a part of the island, and he wants to highlight the other side of the city through the series.
