The nation’s largest collection of documents, rare books and photographs relating to the African American experience resides at this scholarly center run by the New York Public Library. It’s named after Arthur Schomburg, a black Puerto Rican activist who amassed a singular collection of manuscripts, slave narratives and other important artifacts. Regular exhibitions, lectures and film screenings are held on-site.
