“My alma mater was books, a good library…. I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.” ― Malcolm X
The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture is dedicated to the collection, preservation and interpretation of global black experiences. Our inaugural Schomburg Center Literary Festival expands our long tradition of championing authors of African descent from across the globe and publications that celebrate Black history and culture. We will spotlight talented literary figures in the US and abroad. The day-long book festival will feature exhibitors, readings, panel discussions, workshops and more for all ages, from prose to poetry, comic books to young adult novels, fiction and non-fiction. The 2019 Schomburg Center Literary Festival is scheduled for Saturday, June 29, 2019 at 10am.
