Call Mr Robeson

Call Mr. Robeson follows Paul Robeson, a great and famous American actor, singer and civil rights campaigner.

Famous for performing songs like “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen” and “Ol’ Man River,” Robeson was branded a traitor to his country for being too radical and outspoken in the 1950s.

Featuring live piano accompaniment, this roller coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable and eventful life highlights how his pioneering and heroic (but largely forgotten) political activism has led many to describe him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement.
