(3 February 2017) in “Meet Arturo Schomburg, an Afro-Puerto Rican Historian
Called ‘The Father of Black History.’” In “Why Afro-Boricua Scholar Arturo
Schomburg Should Be Celebrated This Black History Month,” Davis writes:*

During the Harlem Renaissance, Afro-Boricua scholar Arturo Schomburg
transformed New York Public Library’s “Division of Negro Literature,
History and Prints” into an epicenter grounded in telling the story of the
African diaspora.

Today, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture stands as a National
Historic Landmark
<https://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20170111/central-harlem/schomburg-center-national-historic-landmark>
after the Department of the Interior (DOI) recognized the longstanding
cultural hub on Jan. 11, days before President Barack Obama completed his
tenure in office.

According to *Latina
<http://www.latina.com/lifestyle/our-issues/arturo-schomburg-puerto-rican-historian-father-black-history>*,
the impetus of the Santurce native’s contribution to black history began in
grade school, where he was told that “black people had no history, heroes
or accomplishments.” Setting out to New York, the renowned bibliophile
collected and preserved thousands
<https://www.nypl.org/about/locations/schomburg> of books, manuscripts,
pamphlets and artwork throughout his lifetime that proved otherwise. [. . .]
