The  Hutchins Center for African & African American Research, directed by Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., is the premier research center on the history and culture of people of African descent the world over. The Center sponsors visiting fellows, art exhibitions, publications, research projects, archives, readings, screenings, and conferences that respond to and excite interest in established and emerging channels of inquiry in African and African American studies. 

At the Hutchins Center, visit the  Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art, designed by David Adjaye, who was the architect of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. You will see the newly installed exhibition, Harlem: Found Ways, which presents multiple artistic visions of Harlem's history and its present moment of transformation. Gallery director Vera Grant will guide you through this dynamic exhibition.  

Spend time in the  Hiphop Archive & Research Institute, a unique and dynamic space at Harvard. Program coordinator Harold Shawn will introduce you to the work that happens in the Hiphop Archive, and will show you why Harvard and hiphop go together well. 

If time permits, tour the rest of the Hutchins Center, where curator Sheldon Cheek will be on hand to share information about our graphic novel exhibition, the Image of the Black in Western Art archive and library, the McGee Family Black Film Poster Collection, and works by Isaac Julien, Romare Beardne, Lyle Ashton Harris, and Charles White, among others.
