The Youth Docent Training Program at the Paul Robeson House & Museum, a proposal submitted by Netter, Paul Robeson House & Museum (PRHM), and Robeson High School, received a Community Partnership Grant from The Sachs Program for Arts Innovation to develop a program to train Robeson High School students to become PRHM docents, transmitting the history and legacy of Paul Robeson.

Congratulations, Suzana Berger (Director of UACS Arts, Culture, & Humanities Partnerships) and our partners at PRHM and Robeson High School!

One of the Provost's Graduate Academic Engagement Fellows at the Netter Center, Breanna Moore (PhD student in History) was also awarded a Sachs grant for her ABCS project, Reparations for Descendants of Enslaved Africans in the U.S.: History & Practice. She will develop a pilot research seminar for students to research and document the impact and history of slavery and racial discrimination against African Americans in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania and partner with reparatory justice activists to advocate for the implementation of reparations for descendants of enslaved Africans.

Congratulations, Breanna!
