Schomburg Center Retraces The Black Panthers In New Exhibition


The Schomburg Center’s “Black Power” exhibition traces ten years of the Black Panther movement, looking at the topics, issues, misunderstandings, and people that shaped a global movement.

Curated by Dr. Sylviane A. Diouf, this exhibition invites guests to take a closer look at the movement that guided the black consciousness between 1966 and 1976. “Black Power” is part of the Schomburg Center’s “Black Power 50” – a yearlong review and introspective look into the Black Power Movement’s 50th anniversary.

“It’s a short movement but it had tremendous legacy. It was a movement of young people. People 16, 17, 18, 19, and early 20s,” explained Diouf.
