Harlem CORE: as told in two parts

This exhibit focuses on the two major phases of Harlem CORE, pre-Black Power and post Black Power.

When the chapter first came to Harlem in 1961, they were a civil rights organization, commited to integration and non-violence.

After 1966, when the civil rights movement transformed into the Black power movement, Harlem CORE embraced self determination and a right to use violence in self-defense. White members of Harlem CORE were eventually pushed out and formally excluded.


Items from the Schomburg Research Library (Harlem, USA)

The items in this exhibit are from different sections of the Schomburg Research Library.

The Schomburg Library on 135th st. and Lenox ave., one block over from Harlem CORE's office in the 1970's, has the best collection of Harlem CORE documents that I have come across yet. The staff were very helpful, especially the Photo division. This is my way of saying thank you to probably one of the greatest archives for Black history in the world.
