Watch Harry Belafonte’s PBS video about Paul Robeson’s life and the importance of telling his story and enhancing his legacy.

“What brought me to the mission of social justice is my love of all people regardless of the color of their skin. And particularly for the African Americans in the Princeton and Mercer County area, who I have come to know and love.”

The renovated three story wood frame house will include community space for exhibitions, meeting rooms and offices; as well as temporary residential lodging. The Robeson Gallery on the ground floor will display Robeson memorabilia and artifacts from the historic Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood.

The first floor will have a meeting room and office space for nonprofit organizations working with us in planning educational, cultural and special events for the underserved.

The second floor will offer temporary lodging for immigrants, service workers, visiting scholars, missionaries and students. A rear courtyard has been added as informal gathering space and private access entrance for residents. White clapboard siding and a front porch will be restored after careful research to conform to the original architectural character of this historic home.
