Assistant Professor of Cultural Studies Rachel Afi Quinn received $4,000 as part of a New York Public Library short-term fellowship. During her month-long fellowship, Quinn studied at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
“The time I spent in New York City, sponsored by the NY Public Library, allowed me to meet with other scholars, researchers and artists,” Quinn said. “I even had the chance to meet with several graduate students for mentorship. I learned to navigate the Schomburg's diverse and important collections and can introduce others to their holdings.”
