Call Mr. Robeson
Monday, November 12th
Paul Robeson was a great and famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner. When he became progressively too radical and outspoken for the establishment’s liking, he was summoned to appear before the House Un-American Activities Committee to give the most difficult and important performance of his career.
“”For those who know little about Robeson, this touring production offers an admirable introduction to a great pioneering performer.” — The Guardian
Nigerian-English baritone Tayo Aluko’s one-man show Call Mr. Robeson presents a roller-coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable and eventful life.
Through some of the most famous songs and speeches from Robeson’s tempestuous career, this one-night-only theater performance highlights how Robeson’s pioneering and heroic (but largely forgotten) political activism led many to describe him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement.
