At the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture


Learning for Liberation

The Schomburg Education Department provides high-quality learning experiences related to the Schomburg Center’s archival collections for students, educators, and people of all ages, by building on the long black community tradition of education for liberation. In our programs and activities, learners of all ages can gain new perspectives on black history, culture, and politics and can acquire skills of inquiry, critical thinking, creative expression, and social action. The Schomburg Education Department also works with all types of educators to share and develop best practices for teaching and learning.
