Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad invites you to an evening at the Schomburg!

 

Whether you've been coming to the Schomburg for years, or -- more particularly -- if this is your first time.

Here's what to expect:

 

**    The chance to meet our new director, Dr. Khalil Muhammad, who will also be reading from and signing copies of his latest book, The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime and the Making of Modern America!

 

**    Guided tours of our exhibitions on Romare Bearden and Malcolm X with both rock star in-house talent and celebrity guests (including Jamie Hector, widely known for his role as Marlo Stanfield in The Wire)!

 

**    Ability to participate in live and virtual conversations with past and present Scholars-in-Residence in real time through social media! Past Scholar-in-Residence, Dayo Gore, will be on hand for a book talk and to sign copies of her recent book, Radicalism at the Crossroads: African-American Artists in the Cold War. And Lisa Gail Collins, current Scholar-in-Residence, will also share thoughts and sign copies of her book, The Art of History: African-American Women Engage the Past.

 

**   Renew or begin your membership with the international Schomburg Society!

 

** Get your chance to sign up for our awesome brigade of volunteers!

 

** Enjoy the sounds of DJ Crystal Clear (Crystal Durant) and The Rakiem Walker Project!
