From the New York Public Library Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
The Schomburg Clipping File mirrors the black experience, not only in North America, but worldwide. Essentially a periodical and newspaper clipping file, this unique collection also includes typescripts, broadsides, pamphlets, programs, book reviews, menus and various other short publications dealing with black history and culture.
An important source for research into all aspects of black activities and accomplishments, the file brings together a huge diversity of material organized by subject and totalling almost a million pages not duplicated elsewhere.
The collection is international in scope including countries in Africa and others not normally associated with black culture such as Italy, Russia and Japan. Easy to use and suitable both for ready reference queries or in-depth research, the Schomburg Clipping File is a valuable and unusual research tool for the study of the African American experience.
