About This Show

Paul Robeson’s profoundly resonant bass voice brought him fame, which he used to wage a relentless battle against racism. Persecuted for his beliefs and virtually expunged from the annals of popular history, Robeson’s courage remains a powerful legacy. The one-man play Paul Robeson chronicles the remarkable life of this American hero and showcases some of his best-loved songs, including “Old Man River,” “This Little Light of Mine,” “Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho,” “Motherless Child,” “Shenandoah,” “St. Louis Blues,” “Jacob’s Ladder,” and more.
