Excellent production ! I was captured from the opening scene to the final goodbye. This show must be extended for more to enjoy and to gain a better appreciation for the life that was Paul Robeson.

Description

Paul Robeson was a descendant of rebellious slaves. He was witness to the artistic wonders of the Harlem Renaissance and the jazz-be bop era, the horrors of the slave trade, the shame of the Holocaust, McCarthyism, blacklists, racism and oppression. His life’s work celebrates our common humanity as he fought globally for social justice.

“Armed with nothing more than the strength of his convictions and his vision of a world where men live as brothers. His message was his life,” says Kenyatta. “He shows us that in spite of our differences; we still have more in common than we do in conflict.”
