A beautiful video on YouTube, that we mention in the episode, tells the story of Paul Robeson, the West Philadelphia Cultural Alliance and its founder Frances P. Aulston, and the house where he spent the last 10 years of his life. It was created in conjunction with Scribe Video Center's "Precious Places Community History Project" in Philadelphia.
