Open Archive: Charles White’s Harlem
Charles White, the gifted painter, printmaker, and draftsman, was part of vibrant communities of artists in New York, Chicago and California that included Paul Roberson, Elizabeth Catlett, Harry Belafonte, and others connected to the Committee for the Negro in the Arts. Schomburg Center librarians and archivists will display and discuss selected items from our collection of materials highlighting the people, places, and organizations artist Charles White encountered during his years in New York between the 1940s and early 1950s.
