Thread Name: Stories about Paul Robeson
Subject: RE: Stories about Paul Robeson
Such interesting pieces about a truly great man. On the subject of the travel ban--I don't think this was mentioned above--he gave a concert on the Canadian / U S border from the U S side in support of labor. There is a wonderful CD out of that concert.
I treasure some LPs I have that were recorded in the 1950s at an AME Zion Church in Harlem because of the gospel he does on them . They will have you stomping your feet---and the wonderful rich bass voice of his introducing the pieces is enough to sent a chill up your spine.
