About this show

As an internationally-renowned vocalist and star of stage and screen, Paul Robeson was one of the best known African American artists in the world in the early 20th century. Through his singing and acting talent, he became enormously popular and wealthy; but as a champion for human rights, he became despised by his people and his country. In The Tallest Tree in the Forest, award-winning playwright and performer Daniel Beaty explodes on stage in a stunning piece that explores the bold choices that defined Robeson's remarkable life.
