Merchant's Description

The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture located in Harlem, New York is a research unit of The New York Public Library system. It is recognized as one of the leading institutions focusing exclusively on African-American, African Diaspora, and African experiences. Begun with the collections of Arturo Alfonso Schomburg more than 85 years ago, the Schomburg has collected, preserved, and provided access to materials documenting black lifeā€”in America and worldwide. It has also promoted the study and interpretation of the history and culture of peoples of African descent. Today, the Schomburg continues to serve the community not just as a center and a library, but also as a space that encourages lifelong education and exploration.

    Nice center with interesting events to attend for free. Say the Boy Scouts of Harlem documentary at Schomburg. Perfect venue for a sweet film.

    The museum, galleries, theaters and gift store make this a cultural "must" when in Harlem. The lower level features research materials that are rare and worthy. Have pen & paper handy to take notes.
