Harlem Speaks of Ray

Ray Carman was giant man, literally and figuratively. When he wasn’t busy leading The Duke Ellington Society, he and his wife Marlene devoted hundreds of hours to greeting and educating visitors to the NJMH for many years. We celebrate his love of all things Ellingtonia with music and memories of a great man.
