Born in Princeton, New Jersey in 1898, Paul Robeson was a trailblazing scholar and athlete at Rutgers College, later becoming an accomplished actor and singer known for his moving performances and progressive activism spanning five decades. A towering figure in the African-American quest for social, political, and economic equity, Robeson connected this struggle with people around the world who also were fighting for political rights, cultural recognition, and economic justice.

This artwork, being designed and produced by Mason Gross School of Art alumnus,  Alonzo Adams , will celebrate Robeson's achievements, educate visitors, and inspire future generations to uphold his values ​​of equality, justice, and artistic expression.
