WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Paul Robeson is a great and famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner. When over the years he gets progressively too radical and outspoken for the establishment’s liking, he is branded a traitor to his country. Just as physical, emotional and mental stress threaten to push him over the edge, he is summoned to appear before the House Un-American Activities Committee, to give the most difficult and important performance of his career.

WHY YOU’LL WANT TO SEE IT
This roller-coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable and eventful life highlights how his pioneering and heroic (but largely forgotten) political activism led many to describe him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement.

WHAT YOU’LL TAKE AWAY
Featuring much fiery oratory and some of his famous songs, including a dramatic rendition of Ol’ Man River, you’ll be breathless watching Tayo Aluko take on such a historical powerhouse figure.
