The Schomburg Center is proud to present our second annual Holiday "Black Tie Edition” of First Fridays, our popular monthly social gathering. This special event will celebrate the spirit of giving, our 91-year history, and vast archival collections that are accessed across the world. Ring in the holiday season at this lavish cocktail affair that includes hors d’oeurves catered by The Seasoned Pot and complimentary glasses of champagne from 6pm to 8pm.
Groove the night away with beats by DJ Sylk, and don’t miss the evening’s host, Dhalimu from Dhali's Closet. We’ll also have a special musical performance from Dewon, signature drinks, and invite you to explore our pop-up exhibition, Black Power 50.
Suggested dress code is cocktail chic!
Tickets are non-refundable and go toward donations for the Schomburg.
