On view through August 15, 2014
All of the individual honorees, including Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou, Ruby Dee, Amiri Baraka, Vincent Harding, Elombe Brath and Cheryll Greene, knew and did great works; these have been documented and archived in the collections at the Schomburg Center. The memorial dedication includes art, photographs, manuscripts, rare documents, books, publications and video clips that memorialize the seven who died during the past year, with contributions from the Schomburg Center’s Divisions: Art and Artifacts Division, Manuscripts and Rare Books Division, JBH Research and Reference Division, Moving Images and Recorded Sounds Division, and Public Engagements & Strategic Initiatives Division.
The dedication is open through August 15, 2014, at The New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
