WELCOME to the PRPAC...
The presence of The Paul Robeson Performing Arts Company, in the Syracuse/CNY community, fills a void in theatre experience choices, by
giving voice to our own stories and experiences that will educate, create
dialogue and ignite change. Since
1982, The PRPAC
has enhanced the community with rich culture in the performing arts out of the
African American tradition. Today we continue to serve as a cultural
outlet, striving to open the eyes and ears of those who are not aware that our
Black and brown heritage is a major component of our country’s past, present

Jackie Warren-Moore Monologue & Poetry Festival
July 17, 2022
Jackie Warren-Moore was a long-standing member, leader, and friend of PRPAC, as well as a beloved fixture of the larger Syracuse community. Jackie was active in the fields of education, community activism, performance, poetry, and facilitation, and she was especially passionate about working with young people and helping them to find their unique voices.
Jackie was also a well-known, nationally recognized, and celebrated writer, director, poet, columnist, artist, activist, and actor. Jackie stands as the first Poet Laureate in Syracuse/Onondaga County, and she was recently awarded with the Annette Briggs Memorial Award from the Vera House.
Over this next month, PRPAC will celebrate Jackie's life, impact, and story. The upcoming Jackie Warren-Moore Monologue and Poetry Festival for youth artists is a tribute to Jackie's memory and ever-lasting presence with PRPAC and within the Syracuse community.
