Kahlil Gilbran Muhammad

Dr. Muhammad directs the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, a Harlem-based branch of the New York Public Library system and one of the world’s leading research facilities dedicated to the history of the African diaspora. He is also the author of The Condemnation of Blackness, which explores how ideas about Black criminality shaped urban America. Before directing the Schomburg Center, the Chicago native and great-grandson of the Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad was history professor at Indiana University, completed a fellowship at the Vera Institute of Justice, and earned his PhD from Rutgers.
