  • Call Mr Robeson – A Life with Songs

    Sun. 30 October 2011 | 7:30 - 9 PM

    Add to calendar

    Paul Robeson is a great and famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner.

    When he gets too radical and outspoken for the establishment’s liking, he is branded a traitor to his country, is harassed and denied opportunities to perform or travel.

    The rollercoaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable life highlights how his activism caused him to be disowned and disremembered, even by the leaders and descendants of the civil rights movement. It features some famous songs and speeches, including a dramatic rendition of Ol’ Man River, and a spectacularly defiant testimony to the Senate House Un-American Activities Committee.

    Written and performed by Tayo Aluko on behalf of the Stop the War Coalition.
