The Wheatley Book Awards in the Miller Theatre at Columbia University opened the 17th annual Harlem Book Fair. The annual award, named for the first published African-American female writer, Phillis Wheatley, is given for literary work and literary advocacy that transcends culture, boundary, and perception. The Harlem Book Fair also included a street fair on 135th Street with a band; inside the Schomburg were exhibits, the authors, book signings, panel discussions, and speakers, including the director of the Schomburg Center, Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad, and David N. Dinkins who served as the 106th Mayor of New York City, from 1990 to 1993. He was the first and, to date, only African American to hold that office. Former NY Mayor David Dinkins discussed his 2013 book, A Mayor’s Life: Governing New York’s Gorgeous Mosaic. Several panel discussions were held in the Langston Hughes Auditorium in the New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center, including Fashioning the Self: The Image in Black, with panelists Nell Irvin Painter, author of seven books (The History of White People, Sojourner Truth: A Life, A Symbol, and Standing at Armageddon: The United States, 1877-1919); author Noliwe Rooks (Hair Raising: Beauty, Culture, and African American Women, White Money/Black Power, and Ladies’ Pages: African American Women’s Magazines and the Culture That Made Them); and Nichelle Gainer (Vintage Black Glamour); moderated by author Aimee Meredith Cox (Shapeshifters: Black Girls and the Choreography of Citizenship).
