Paul Robeson lived here and here and here…

Paul Robeson lived here,

as did Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Joe Louis, Lena Horne, Zora Neale Houston, Andy Kirk, Canada Lee, and Kenneth and Mamie Clarke.

And Paul Robeson lived here, too,

as did Thurgood Marshall, W.E.B. DuBois, Aaron Douglas, William Stanley Braithwaite, Clarence Cameron White, Walter White, Roy Wilkins and Jimmy Lunceford.

And Paul Robeson lived here, in one of these houses or apartments, but I’m not sure which cos we forgot to write down the address.

But not a single fucking plaque. So this will have to do, just round the corner from the Schomburg.
