Kickoff To A Season On The Cutting Edge!
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!
