What It Means to Be A Negro in Princeton

October 2017

This script’s source material is What It Means to Be A Negro in Princeton, a report by ethnographer Preston R. Wilcox. I recorded this script as an audio tour for the Lewis Center’s Art Festival at Princeton University.  It made the Making Histories Walking Tour accessible to physically handicapped people.
