 The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture is a research library of the New York Public Library (NYPL) and an archive repository for information on people of African descent worldwide. Located in the Harlem section of Manhattan, it has, almost from its inception, been an integral part of the Harlem community.

The resources of the Center are broken up into five divisions, the Art and Artifacts Division, the Jean Blackwell Hutson General Research and Reference Division, the Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books Division, the Moving Image and Recorded Sound Division, and the Photographs and Prints Division.

 

In addition to research services, the center hosts readings, discussions, art exhibitions, and theatrical events. It is open to the general public.
