Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture

The new director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Dr. Khalil Muhammad (left), recently shared his vision for the institution:

“I would like people to walk through the doors and recognize immediately that there is a space in here that will speak to young people in the language that works best for them,” said Muhammad. “We need a lot more buttons around here to press. We need video images, multimedia displays, electronic kiosks.”

“We need to be able to engage young people with state-of-the-art technology so that really we’re delivering the same content … but we’re delivering it in a way that will excite them about the past,” said Muhammad, a father of three.

    Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad, I remembered what you told me on my visit with you at the Schomburg Center on September,26th “that you still feel like you” and as long as you still feel like you,you will be just fine” It is always a problem when we start to feel like someone other than who we are. I know you already know this Truth! “Thanks for being you. Rosa Bogar
