The Paul Robeson Cultural Center was founded in 1969 and is dedicated to serving the Rutgers University community by offering a wealth of programs, initiatives, and services that reflect the robust history, heritage, and diversity of the African diaspora. Widely recognized as the first black cultural center on a college campus in the United States, we encourage to consider the complexities of their identity, while celebrating Blackness in all of its expressions and embodying the founding legacies of academic excellence and intersectional social justice.
