We show up to the National Museum of African-American Culture and History, but they deny us entry. Is my melanin not good enough🤔?! Am I not African, or American enough🧐? They turned us away like Trump turned away immigrants at the border! .

I’ve seen @fireleibaez’s show #joyoutofire @schomburgcenter more than 5x. I live 3 blocks away from this haven for black culture. I did the same when @derrickadamsny had the #PatrickKelly exhibit @nyplcounteecullen. Cherish black art spaces. #ggartpicks #harlem

This museum is a MUST-SEE!; they said. Chock full of culture and history, they said. Well how can anyone get in to see it if the ticket system is so silly! Admission is free but you have to reserve tickets online. By the time we got there (14h) there were no more tickets available for the day. Tell me why would you give priority to people who reserve online versus those who actually show up? Every other museum in town you can just walk in. I’m over it! @nmaahc I’ll come visit when you have a better system in place. Until then, I have the Schomburg!

My pride is not about excluding you...it actually has nothing to do with you!!! It’s about not being discouraged by a globally-promoted perspective of how society taught you to feel inferior and hate what you are and what you look like and choosing instead to rise above it by educating yourself with knowledge & self-conscious self-love in order to see & own your innate melanin-kissed beauty, power and strength!!! #pride #panafricanflagday #motivationalmonday #nyc #schomburgcenter #harlem #love #summer2018 #blackpride #nofearnoshame #knowthyself #supportblackbusiness #selfawareness #marcusgarvey #blackhistoryisamericanhistory

Insights of @fireleibaez current exhibition „Joy Out of Fire“ @schomburgcenter in Harlem. The show continues Báez’s longstanding interest in representations of women, particularly Afro-Caribbean/Afro-Latina women in visual culture and history. The project presented by @studiomuseum in partnership with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and organised by @hallierr.

Anyone who has been to the Magic Johnson Theater has seen the permanent photographic exhibition, adorning the interior space on the upper level, as one makes their way to multiple screening rooms to see a film. Images of African American celebrities from the world of media, the arts,, athletics, etc., throughout the century, stare back at you from one side of the room. While on the other side, along the windows overlooking Frederick Douglass Blvd., are images of literary giants as Langston Hughes, and the bibliophile Arturo A. Schomburg, whom the Center for Black Research & Culture in Harlem is named after, and which institution provided this imagery from their archives. As a proud Puerto Rican I've often wondered why there isn't a space with a permanent exhibition revolving around the historic Spanish-speaking community of Harlem? Inside of the library & archive of the Center for Puerto Rican Studies they feature an ever evolving permanent exhibition touching on a variety of topics related to the Puerto Rican diaspora. The Caribbean Cultural Center also has continuous art and or photographic exhibitions revolved around the African diaspora. El Museo del Barrio, who began as a dedicated preserver of the community history, now operates like any Museum with a state charter. Most often showcasing art work from South America, Europe, etc. But none feature a grandiose permanent fixture akin to what one sees entering the upper level of the Magic Johnson Theater. A space within La Marqueta on Park Avenue would have been an ideal spot to house a permanent gallery exhibition, complete with gift shop and perhaps other amenities (cafe, library, Wi-Fi, etc.). But oh well.

From the @NYTimes: Few poets can claim a final resting place as, well, poetic as Langston Hughes. His ashes are buried under the floor of the lobby of the New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, beneath a mosaic cosmogram that includes lines from his classic poem “The Negro Speaks of Rivers.” Hughes, a leading light of the Harlem Renaissance whose work aimed to capture the whole of the African-American experience, was only 18 when he wrote that poem. Or was he? Recently, a writer’s casual online search for one of his own ancestors accidentally led to a wealth of unknown documentation of Hughes’s early life, including evidence of a different birth year. | Read more at the link in our bio 👆🏾
