All Things Harlem
The time is right for the creation of a national alternative to mainstream media; a network of grassroots new media companies to represent the voiceless at the base of the social structure in America and abroad.
At a time when the power structure and corporate media have openly declared their concern exclusively for the rich, the powerful, and the middle class “Still Here” Harlem Productions is committed to build a new media production company to cover every aspect of the community life of the marginalized and voiceless in Harlem. To do this, “Still Here” Harlem Productions is committed to network with all other Harlem centered media companies to provide comprehensive coverage of the community and its interest. It is also our mission to develop a template that may be replicated wherever Harlem’s exist in America.

ATH Video responsible for the removal of offensive product from Target

Target has come under fire for selling a watermelon soda that has controversial images.
Manufactured by Miami, Fla.-based Cawy Bottling Co., the soda can depicts an image of Black girl with ponytails eating watermelon on one side and an image of a white boy on the other.
Controversy swirled after Paolo Walker, a video producer from Still Here Harlem Productions Inc., saw the product on the shelves of a Target store located at 225th Street in Harlem, N.Y.
The producer filmed the soda on store shelves and surveyed store customers - many of whom were offended by the imagery because it reminded them of past racist depictions of Black children.
An online video blast of their findings led to the Cawy watermelon soda being pulled from Target locations.
According to Target spokesperson Jana O'Leary, the retailer pulled the product off stores shelves earlier this month. This summer, Target began carrying the item in 35 of its 1,700 locations.
