Peoplehood : THE BLOCK! The Paul Robeson House, West Philadelphia Cultural Alliance and the neighbors of 100 block of S 50th street have been Peoplehood’s gracious hosts for the past 19 years. Developed in partnership with the esteemed Fran Aulston former director of the Robeson House, envisioning the parade in the legacy of Robeson’s arts and activism and now blessed annually by current director, Vernoca Michael, Robeson’s niece and the first female African American boxing promoter and owner of the legendary Blue Horizon. Block captain, Mielele Hawkins gets neighbors on board for the street closure and neighborhood kids come out early to claim their puppet house or bird wings for the parade. #thankyou100blockofs50th#peoplehoodparade #westphilly photos by @chris_bakerevens
