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.
