Call Mr Robeson, A life, with Songs…

There are times when certain performances tell a story that will stay with you forever. This is one of them.

Tayo Aluko & Friends  present Call Mr Robeson – A Life, With Songs.

 Paul Robeson is a world-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. This roller-coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable life highlights how his political activism led many to describe him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement. It features some famous songs (including a dramatic rendition of Ol’ Man River), speeches, and a spectacularly defiant testimony to the Senate House Un-American Activities Committee.
