Paul Robeson, The Life in Retrospect

Paul Leroy Robeson was an American bass-baritone concert artist, stage and film actor, athlete, and activist who became famous both for his cultural accomplishments, and, for his political stances. As my friend Tony West said “A warrior who was not allowed to fight…”

The Paul Robeson, The Life in Retrospect show promotes interest in authentic Black History as it facilitates outreach to a diverse group of people not yet familiar with the Paul Robeson story – which includes his triumphs and struggles.

The Show

Like the Oscars, the show opens with an invitation to God – Kumbaya with African Dance & a visual retrospective of the residue of slavery.  Mr. Love will perform with a concert pianist, a violin virtuoso and three female vocalists (who also act). The show will display the pageantry of 1900’s America while also putting its social cost in full view. This educational piece is intended to reach all audiences - increasing their appreciation and enjoyment of the arts. 

The show features the talents of: The great Bobby Floyd with Chase Potter. Support roles feature the talents of Vicki Saunders; Dolly King; & Darchelle Williams.
