Princeton Public Library, Newsroom and Discovery Center
Stop by the Discovery Center to explore artifacts and archival materials that tell the story of segregation in Princeton – from businesses to schools to the local fight for civil rights. This Open Archive is presented in conjunction with PPL and HSP’s Princeton Plan exhibition.
The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with little-seen artifacts and documents from HSP’s vast collection. Featuring a different theme each time, these events present historical material with minimal interpretation (no labels or glass boxes here!) and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions, and be the historian themselves. HSP’s Curator of Collections and Research will be on hand to share information and answer any questions.
