SPECIAL PAUL ROBESON FEATURE
This year is a fundraiser for the Paul Robeson Community Wellness Center (PRCWC) construction fund. We are asking those who can to donate $20.00 toward this fund for attending this amazing event. Don’t know who Paul Robeson is, or want to learn more? The event will launch an on-site exhibit about Paul Robeson by local collector Alden Kimbraugh and the inaugral performance of a new spoken word piece by TV star Sheldon Baily. Don’t know what the PRCWC is, the event will include a tour of the space and will showcase a model and renderings of the rennovations that will happen.
