About The Schomburg Center
The Schomburg Center is located in Harlem’s historic crossroads: 515 Malcolm X Boulevard and 135th Street. For more than 85 years, the Schomburg Center has collected, preserved, and provided free access to materials documenting the global black experience. In addition to state-of-the-art study and storage facilities for the five collection divisions, the Schomburg Center offers four magnificent spaces, including a 321-seat professional theater, for intimate gatherings, as well as lavish extravaganzas.
The Schomburg Center offers four different rental spaces: Langston Hughes Auditorium, Langston Hughes Lobby, Schomburg Courtyard and the American Negro Theatre. Each space is available for events, from small intimate gatherings to lavish, spectacular entertainment.
