Dominican University graduate library students are helping to archive a collection of materials related to Paul Robeson, renowned performer, artist, Black activist and influential part of the Harlem Renaissance. The collection was collected by the late Forest Park resident Mark Rogovin and donated to the Forest Park Public Library by his widow, Michelle Melin-Rogovin. Containing Robeson's artwork, posters, music and papers, the collection was donated to honor the work of Forest Park Against Racism.

Once complete, the collection will be available virtually and in-person at the library.
