Event Details

To kick off LGBT Pride Month, the Schomburg Center is proud to present the third annual First Fridays: LGBT Pride social gathering, in honor of our In the Life Archive, a collection of materials of and by black LGBT people throughout history preserved in our Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books Division

Complementing the party will be a special pop-up exhibit culled from our collections highlighting the life and work of LGBT activist Storme DeLarverie, who's credited as having thrown the first punch against police which sparked the 3-day Stonewall Riots. 

Celebrate pride with the music of DJ Missy B and Craig Nice in the Langston Hughes Lobby and jam to DJ Frankie Paradise in our American Negro Theatre as you enjoy our signature drinks and extended viewing hours in our galleries.

Legendary drag performer Harmonica Sunbeam will hit the stage for a legendary performance.

The event will be hosted by Dhalimu from Dhali's Closet and Lee Soulja from Black Pride NYC.  

There will be free HIV mobile Testing onsite by AIDS Health Care Foundation! 

Suggested donations are welcome. 

Dress code is FABULOUS!

Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture

 

In January 2017, the Schomburg Center was named a National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service, recognizing its vast collection of materials that represent the history and culture of people of African descent through a global, transnational perspective.

The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture located in Harlem, New York, is a research unit of The New York Public Library system. The Center consists of three connected buildings: The Schomburg Building, the Langston Hughes Building, and the Landmark Building. It is recognized as one of the leading institutions focusing exclusively on African-American, African Diaspora, and African experiences. Begun with the collections of Arturo Alfonso Schomburg 90 years ago, the Schomburg has collected, preserved, and provided access to materials documenting black life in America and worldwide. It has also promoted the study and interpretation of the history and culture of people of African descent.  In 2015, it won the National Medal for Museum and Library Service. Today, the Schomburg continues to serve the community not just as a center and a library, but also as a space that encourages lifelong education and exploration.
