Formerly known as the Rainier Beach High School Performing Arts Center, the place was renamed in 2004 to honor Paul Roberson. He was the first African American to make a mark in film and theater, a civil rights activist and a passionate sports person. The center was built in 1998, and since then is used by the school for hosting various events and programs organized by the students, especially those from their arts curriculum. However, the vision to create the best performing-arts program in the nation, has let them to take major initiatives to host special events to draw a crowd. This includes African Drum and Dance Ensemble show and the musical "Dream girls".
