Schomburg Center Acquires Port Of Harlem Print Issues
December 6 – December 18, 2018
our first issue's cover

The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture acquired the remaining 13 print issues of Port Of Harlem magazine that it did not already have in its archives. The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture is a research library of the New York Public Library and an archive repository for information on people of African descent worldwide. It is named for Afro-Puerto Rican scholar Arturo Alfonso Schomburg.

The acquisition comes on the heels of the “How to Preserve Your Legacy” verbal workshop co-sponsored by the Alexandria Black History Museum and Port Of Harlem magazine. During the workshop, University Archivist at Morgan State University, Dr. Ida Jones, suggested that participants contact archives about their interest in cataloging and preserving their historical collections for future researchers.

“We are now talking with Morgan State University about archiving the second of three almost full sets of the 40 print issues that we released,” says Publisher Wayne Young. Young says the only issue in which an original is missing from the other two sets is the very first one.¬†“We thought our first issue would be our only issue,” he says with a smile.

Young is also working with the Indiana Room of the Gary Public Library on archiving issues and other memorabilia related to the exhibition, “Our Children, Our World,” which the magazine sponsored in honor of ¬†Gary’s Centennial birthday in 2006.
