Whether you've been to the Schomburg before, or MOST IMPORTANTLY, have never been, here's what you can 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)!
