Save The Date!

July 18 – July 19

Please join us for the 1st Annual Paul Robeson Theatre Festival. Opening night features a reception followed by a reading of “Paul Robeson in Berlin” by Robert Coles and Bartley McSwine. Saturday afternoon consists of 16 short one act plays by both emerging and established playwrights, all inspired by Robeson’s principles, dignity, and intelligence. Each play reminds us of the extraordinary scholarship, talents, suffering, and triumphs in one man’s lifetime which forged the legacy we know as Paul Robeson. His fight for social justice and human rights is the making of dramatic tension, joy, and celebration. The festival serves not just as homage to Robeson, but also to give artists at various levels opportunity to display and cultivate thier talents. Attendees will leave inspired by Paul’s legacy.
