Paul Robeson was both a true Renaissance man and a prominent African-American activist, and now The World is My Home: The Life of Paul Robeson provides the perfect opportunity to learn all about this fascinating character in Stogie Kenyatta's one-man show at the Stockbridge Community Arts Center. This powerful and poignant performance tells the amazing true story of a man who could seemingly do anything. He played in the NFL while getting his law degree, then became famous as an entertainer after starring in Show Boat and Othello and recording deep-voiced renditions of spirituals like his famed "Ol' Man River." Robeson was also an outspoken civil rights activist who fought to end racism and oppression and became a target of the McCarthy hearings.
