Stogie Kenyatta’s Acclaimed One Man Show “The World is My Home-The Life of Paul Robeson
Stogie Kenyatta, actor, writer, and comedian performs his acclaimed Broadway Style One-Man Show “The World is My Home-The Life and Times of Paul Robeson,” bringing a unique interpretation to the stage, while majestically capturing the essence of Paul Robeson.
Portraying 10 characters, he chronologically takes us through the life of history’s first black Renaissance man and one of America’s most complex, brilliant citizens. Magnificently performed without intermission, with props, several wardrobe changes and 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 and entertaining as it is educational, Kenyatta ages from a 5-year-old Paul, to the 70-year-old, world weary warrior that the blacklisted Robeson had become.
