This Black History Month, Into America presents “Harlem on My Mind,” a four-part series that follows the interconnected lives of four Black creators in and around the Harlem Renaissance. In part 2, host Trymaine Lee explores the story of Arturo Schomburg—specifically, how his personal collection of Black books and art grew into the New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center, an 11 million piece archive. Trymaine talks to author Vanessa Valdés, curator Shola Lynch, and Schomburg’s grandson, Dean Schomburg, to better understand who Arturo was and the impact of his legacy on Black identity and culture.
