This stirring tribute to Paul Robeson, a real American hero, brings to light his political stand and reflects upon the heavy price he paid.  The 1 hour  45 minute show features twenty-one patriotic, popular and  spiritual songs.

KB Solomon brings to life the spirit, sound, and music of Paul Robeson. 

"There can be no greater tragedy than to forget one's origin and finish despised and hated by the people among whom one grew up.  To have that happen would be the sort of thing to make me rise up from my grave." - Paul Robeson, 1938

If that would happen, Robeson would certainly smile while sitting front row center in Speak Of Me As I Am.
