CALL MR. ROBESON

Written and Performed by Tayo Aluko

Paul Robeson is a great and famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner. When he gets too radical and outspoken for the establishment's liking, he is branded a traitor to his country, is harassed, and denied opportunities to perform or travel.

Call Mr. Robeson is a rollercoaster journey through his remarkable life, highlighting how his activism caused him to be disowned and disremembered, even by leaders and descendants of the civil rights movement. The show features some famous songs (including a dramatic rendition of Ol' Man River), speeches, and a spectacularly defiant testimony to the Senate House Un-American Activities Committee.
