Rudahl will discuss her life's work with Princeton High School senior Taylor-Faith McKie. They will explore topics including the aesthetics of racial progress today. Also discussed will be "Two Marches," Rudahl's short film about the 1963 March on Washington and the 2017 Women's March, both of which she attended, and the artistry of her graphic novel "Ballad of an American: A Graphic Biography of Paul Robeson," one of her recent works published by Rutgers University Press.
McKie is passionate about human and children’s rights advocacy. As president of the PHS Black Student Union and LOCC (Leaders of Color for Change), she aims to create an increasingly tolerant environment within the Princeton community.
This program is being organized in collaboration with the library and the Paul Robeson House of Princeton. The Paul Robeson House of Princeton is a social justice organization headquartered at Paul Robeson’s birthplace, a residential property located at 110 Witherspoon St., Princeton. Its mission is to serve as a permanent tribute to Paul Robeson and to honor his legacy of activism in the service of social justice.
