The Paul Robeson Songbook
A Negro Spiritual and Gospel Celebration
of the Music of Paul Robeson
“While nostalgically revered for his booming rendition of “Ol’ Man River” from Kern and Hammerstein’s Show Boat, Paul Robeson was also the consummate blend of scholar, athlete, actor, attorney, social activist and international concert performer; a true Man for All Times. The Robeson Songbook is a concert presentation celebrating the life and legacy of Paul Robeson conveyed amidst the song palette of gospel and Negro spirituals he loved so well and which brought him international acclaim. Features songs such as “Go Down, Moses”, “Down By the Riverside”, “Were You There?”, “There is a Balm in Gilead”, “Deep River”, “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho”, “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child”, “Ol’ Man River” and more. Perfect for Black History Month, educational series and other cultural celebrations.”
