Event description

Description

The Schomburg Center is proud to present a special Honoring "Prince vs. Michael Jackson Edition” of First Fridays, our popular monthly social gathering. Dance the night away to your favorite hits as we pay tribute to the two musical icons and pioneers who paved the way for today's pop culture trends and whose creative genius inspired people of all backgrounds across the globe.

Celebrate your favorite legend by dressing in one of MJ or Prince's classic looks while grooving to beats by WBLS's John Quick. Our special guest host will be by Dhalimu from Dhali's Closet. Enjoy our signature drinks and extended gallery viewing hours of our current exhibitions Black Power!, Syncretic Vibrations and InHarlem Firelei Báez: Joy out of Fire.

Donations are welcome.

Suggested dress code is your favorite Michael Jackson or Prince style, otherwise FABULOUS!
