The Schomburg Center was born of one man's desire to gather information to chronicle achievement of the African diaspora. Something that was hard for many to believe almost a hundred years ago (Hell. That's a stretch for some cretins now) as it was thought back then that Blacks had no history, and therefore definitely had no accomplishments to speak about. Born in Puerto Rico of a Black mother from St. Croix and a German businessman father, Arturo Alfonso Schomburg was a record keeper and notable of the Harlem Renaissance. Now under the supervision of Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad, the center marks its 90th anniversary of Schomburg's dream.
