Thanks for that
As a child, after the war I was taken to hear Paul Robeson sing in Lord Street in Liverpool
I was told he rubbed my hair as a gesture of friendship - haven't washed it since !!

My music teacher was African-American and was taken
to hear Paul Robeson and to shake his hand:
"I got to look UP," was how my teacher put it.

One of my teacher's great inspirations:
"When one door closed, [Robeson] opened two."

His Othello is recorded,
and after listening to his recording,
I was -- and am -- in awe.
He makes Olivier sound like a bad dream.

One of the the most cherished records in my collection is an early Topic 78" made as a description of the Peekskill Riots - commentary by Pete Seeger and Howard Fast and singing by Seeger and Robeson - I later acquired an early edition of the book
I have digitised the record and the book, if anybody would like a copy
I also have the book, 'The Story of Unity Theatre', by Colin Chambers, which inlus=des some descriptions of Robeson's association with that Theate - The Cover has a photograph of him and a very young Alie Bass in the 1938 Unity production of 'Plant in the Sun'

Actor and writer Tayo Aleko doesn't have Robeson's characteristic deep voice, but he does a good show, and post-show audience discussions. You can find some excerpts of "Call Mr Robeson" on youtube. Tayo's own page is http://www.tayoalukoandfriends.com/robeson/

Jim has kindly shared a bunch of stuff with me, which I will enjoy with a bit of help from more IT-savvy members of my family. What a great place is Mudcat!
