The Princeton Plan: 70 Years of School Integration

Implemented 70 years ago, the Princeton Plan was a national landmark in school integration, one that merged Princeton’s Nassau Street School and Witherspoon School for Colored Children after a pivotal change in the New Jersey Constitution. Learn about the local impact and national reverberations of Princeton’s school integration and view two clocks that used to hang in the Witherspoon School for Colored Children, on display at Updike Farmstead through the end of 2018.

A companion panel exhibition about the Princeton Plan will be on view in the Princeton Room at the Princeton Public Library starting October 2, co-sponsored by the Library and the Witherspoon-Jackson Historical and Cultural Society.
