Call Mr Robeson – a life, with songs


Tayo Aluko & Friends (UK)

One of the 20th Century’s most impressive but overlooked figures is revived in this powerful, compelling tour-de-force. When Paul Robeson, actor, singer and civil rights campaigner gets too radical and outspoken for the establishment’s liking, he is branded a traitor, harassed, and denied opportunities. This rollercoaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable life highlights how his pioneering and heroic activism led many to see him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement. Features some famous songs (including a dramatic rendition of Ol’ Man River), speeches, and Robeson’s spectacularly defiant testimony to the Un-American Activities Committee. **** ‘First-rate’ (Guardian).
