Paul Robeson Center for the Arts

Event Description


The Arts Council of Princeton presents the a Teen Poetry Cafe with the African American Cultural Collaborative of Mercer County. This Community Stage event, held during African American History month, will showcase poetry readings by local teens. Founded in 2011, the African American Cultural Collaborative of Mercer County has worked to become “more than just a festival” with goals of collaborating to educate, empower and unite through cultural arts, health and wellness, entertainment and sports. This focus is centered on cohesiveness among generations of families to celebrate the rich heritage that unites Africans in the diaspora across cultures.
Community Stage productions are free (and nearly free) events held in collaboration with local artistic groups and organizations. Community stage programming enables the Arts Council’s Solley Theater to act as an accessible space for community partnerships and high-quality artistic experiences.
Program is free, but advance registration is recommended. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance. For a full lineup of Community Stage events, click here .
