The Life and times of Paul Robeson

Veteran folksinger and shantyman Joe Stead presents an illustrated lecture charting the extraordinary story of Paul Robeson. Born the son of a slave Robeson became a world famous singer and a belligerent, forceful spokesman for black human rights before being ostracised by the civil rights movement in the 60s. This provocative and inspiring evening is not to be missed.

Admission £8 (£6 unwaged)
