a benefit for Youth Leadership Support Network,

Stogie Kenyatta brings a unique interpretation to the stage,where he majestically captures the essence of Paul Robeson. Portraying 10 characters he chronologically takes us thru the life of history's 1ST Black renaissance man & one of America's most complex, brilliant citizens.

Magnificently performed without intermission, with props, several wardrobe changes & an inspiring finger-snapping Jazz, Bebop,Gospel, Big band soundtrack. The play opens as Robeson's father, a 15 year old runaway slave, rides the underground railroad to freedom. As laugh -out loud funny & entertaining as it is educational, Kenyatta ages from a 5 year old Paul, to the 70 yr old, world weary warrior that the blacklisted Robeson had become.
