“Retire the Mortgage Fund”

In a red brick house – not unlike many others on the 4900 block of Walnut Street in Philadelphia – Paul Robeson came to live out his final years with his big sister Marian Forsythe. The unassuming rowhouse was a haven for a man who had used his voice in song and speeches to advocate for the rights of oppressed people.

It is now the Paul Robeson House & Museum, and it belongs to the community just as much as Robeson belonged to the world.

It is a place where high school students exhibit their artwork and do internships, the Paul Robeson Chess Club practices for tournaments, and neighbors gather for porch festivals and Peoplehood marches to a nearby park as a sign of solidarity and spirit. It is also a place where conversations are held on current issues.

It is a place where partnerships are forged with the University of Pennsylvania, the Paul Robeson Library at Rutgers University (NJ) and the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, NJ, where he was born.

We are seeking your help to pay off our mortgage and make repairs to the house. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax-deductible.

The Plumfund allows for three ways to donate: directly from your Paypal account balance to our Paypal account (wphlca@gmail.com), credit card via Paypal to our Paypal account, or by check payable to WPCA and mailed to our address: 4949 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19139.

When paying by check, please click the "Pay Offline" link to the right of the Contributor Information heading on the Plumfund page and follow the instructions.

Visit us at paulrobesonhouse.org, on Facebook, and on-site at the house itself at 4951 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19139, or call 215-747-4675.
