As part of the Witherspoon-Jackson Neighborhood Stories Project, this panel features former and current elected officials of Princeton discussing their experiences as African-American residents and leaders in the Princeton Public Library community room on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 at 7 pm.

The W-J Stories Project, launched in February 2015, was created to build a permanent record and directory that will tie together written and photographic collections currently housed by the Arts Council of Princeton, the Princeton Public Library, Paul Robeson House and the Princeton Historical Society. This treasure trove of oral histories and photographic materials will provide scholars, students, and history buffs with an original source of material for study, enlightenment or further research.
