Add your name to have the 135th Street and Lenox Avenue Subway Station Named after Arturo Alfonso Schomburg!

As our nation is rightly talking about the need to remove confederate statues and odes to colonizers, we must also talk about lifting up our freedom fighters and those who paved the way. By connecting the Black and LatinX communities through research and love for the Black diaspora and opening the door to and advancing the study of Black history, Arturo Schomburg is more than deserving of being recognized with an MTA station renaming in Harlem.

Please sign this petition to have the 135th Lenox Avenue Subway station named after Arturo Schomburg.

This renaming would serve as a reminder towards the continuous and necessary work towards equity and justice.
