The World is My Home – Paul Robeson

A tribute to the legacy of a tortured genius who was so ahead of his time, Robeson lived several lives filled with triumph and tragedy. Graduating top of his class and Valedictorian in 1919 from Rutgers University, he got a law degree from Columbia University and passed the NY State Bar in 1922. Robeson became the first Negro lawyer hired by a N.Y .Law firm. He was the son of a preacher who transcended race and dreamed for a colorblind society. Robeson spoke out against the Holocaust, visited Warsaw ghetto in Poland, and co-founded the OAU (Organization for African Unity) with W.E.B. Dubois and pushed for the liberation of Africa.

Stogie Kenyatta brings a unique interpretation to the stage, where he majestically captures the essence of Robeson. Portraying 14 characters he chronologically takes us thru the life of History’s 1st Black Renaissance man and one of America’s most complex and brilliant citizens.
