Women’s Jazz Festival: Catherine Russell & Lakecia Benjamin
- Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York NY
Please join us for an afternoon symposium commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. In remembrance of the enslaved, we will examine American Slavery as historical memory and national legacy. Presentations by distinguished historians will be followed by a dynamic discussion with the audience.
The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, a research unit of The New York Public Library, is one of the world's leading research facilities devoted to the preservation of materials on the global African and African diasporan experiences. A focal point of Harlem's cultural life, the Center sponsors programs and events that illuminate and illustrate the richness of black history and culture.
