The Schomburg is bang opposite 135 St Station so easy to get to. I am soo happy that I visited it. Langton Hughes' ashes are buried on the ground floor with a mosaic of the rivers to depict his most famous poem. Very, very informative museum above and one can't help feel so proud of the contribution of African Americans yet sad and angry that this is not celebrated acknowledged and taught enough. Every racist white American should visit it... might help him see the people he despises in a new light There are clean washrooms and water fountains which are blessings. The staff is friendly, informed and willing to help. The gift shop has a great array of books by black authors(Yay!), tee shirts, bags and a few souvenirs that were too expensive in mho.

This center, which is part of the NY Public Library, is a veritable goldmine for anyone interested in black history and culture. It was the starting point for a tour of Harlem I had signed up for. An internet search for directions to the center perked my interest so much so that I arrived an hour earlier just so I could spend some time discovering this amazing place in the heart of Harlem. I was fortunate to see a special exhibit on Martin Luther King titled Crusader, which had extraordinary photos of Mr. King's visit to India and his acceptance of the Nobel Prize in Oslo. Schomberg Center has so much to offer through its awesome library, exhibits, talks and educational programs. NYC is blessed to have this center.

Whether its geology research or history and culture This is the place to visit in NY for all interested in Black History and Culture . Located in Harlem. Before we had genetic ancestry we had the Schomburgh. In addition to material there are great exhibits and works by some of the great writers and activist in our history in America.

I'm a member of the Schomburg Library since before the new one was built as a child I would study in the original library on 135 St back in the 60s

This is a must see if you're in Harlem. Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Black Power Movement this exhibit showcases some of the most influential figures in the Black community during the movement. There's another exhibit called the Lost Chapters and Manuscripts of the Autobiography of Malcom X. Really had a great experience and the Staff are very friendly too.
