Description from The Schomburg:

Soul has been used to describe cities, rhythms, collective power, and the ultimate place of change. Visit the Schomburg Center for an institution-wide escapade through the many facets of soul embodied in black experiences archived at the Schomburg over the last 91 years. With performances, conversations, and special exhibits from our five research divisions, we will highlight the sacred, rebellious, and lyrical ways soul has and continues to be displayed through African-American, African Diaspora, and African experiences.

The Schomburg Center’s annual Open House is an opportunity for the public to meet our librarians, archivists and curators. Enjoy light refreshments, visit our newly renovated divisions and current exhibitions, and attend programs in the Langston Hughes Auditorium.

Date and Time: Thu, October 19, 2017, 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
