This year, we'd like to celebrate Black History Month at The FIT Library by screening the HBO Original Documentary  Donyale Luna: Supermodel, the story of the first Black woman to cover Vogue (1966)and Harper's Bazaar (1965). Before the screening, we will have a panel discussion about Luna's legacy and the triumphs and trials of the Black model and more, with Moderator Monica Williamson of the Gladys Marcus Library at Fashion Institute of Technology; Isoul H. Harris, a producer of Donyale Luna: Supermodel and former EIC of EDITION by Modern Luxury; Constance R. White, former EIC of Essence; Pioneering Supermodel Coco Mitchell; and former EIC of EBONY, Marielle Bobo.


This will be a free, public event held in FIT's Katie Murphy Amphitheater.

FIT Library

The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) Library supports the academic and research needs of the FIT community. A well-selected collection of more than 197,000 volumes of print materials (and over 300,000 combined print, non-print, and electronic) supports the instructional programs in art and design, business and technology, liberal arts and our Graduate School. Collections also include specialized electronic and digital resources and materials not often found in conventional academic libraries, such as the fashion and trend forecasting services, sketch collections, clipping files, and fashion show DVDs. Our newspapers and periodicals include more than 400 current subscriptions and extensive back issue runs. Databases, provided by FIT, SUNYConnect, and the New York State Library, provide access to thousands of full-text journal articles, books, images, research reports and other resources.
