In honor of Arturo Schomburg's Afro-Latino heritage and dedication to collecting materials that celebrate the African Diaspora experience, the Schomburg Center and Afro-Latin Project are excited to present the «Afro-Latin» Edition of First Fridays. Enjoy our signature drinks, and groove the night away with a mix of heart-thumping beats and live performance at our popular monthly social gathering!

The evening's DJ IRS will be spinning the sizzling latin sounds that will infuse the evening with raw energy and edge of New York City’s unique nightlife vibes. The event will be punctuated by a lively performance from Afro-Venezuelan drum group, Tambor Y Caña (IG: @tambornyc).

We are proud to announce our First Friday partnership with The Afro-Latino Latin Project. They produce the Afro-Latino Festival in NYC, which is a multi-day summer event celebrating the contributions of Afro-Latinos through networking, cultural exchange, artistic showcases, culinary presentations, and education. Their mission is to provide a positive public space to pay tribute to the African roots of people from Latin America and the Caribbean.
