Thousands were expected at Sunday's event at Grant National Memorial Park in Morningside Heights to mark the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, as part of the city's annual Harlem Week.

The day's events, which were to happen rain or shine, included a fashion show and cultural showcase featuring local acts and a free outdoor concert paying tribute to the music of Stevie Wonder.
