Romus Broadway and His Collection of Photos, Negatives, and Collages of Princeton's African American Community

Romus Broadway

Romus Broadway, an outstanding photographer and lifelong resident of Princeton, NJ, has 30,000 negatives taken over 50 years that focus on Princeton’s African American community, the University’s African American students from the early 1960s on, and the University’s multiracial Princeton community workforce. He has a remarkable memory and can name, and provide background for, individuals he has photographed.
Now is the time for the University to approach Romus Broadway regarding his collection and to encourage a new group of students to utilize and develop their oral-history skills in a project vital to a fuller understanding of Princeton University’s history.
