About the event

This concert is being presented as a fundraiser to benefit the Justice for Keith Lamar Campaign and the Michigan Peace Council. Donations will be gratefully accepted.

A stellar one-night-only concert celebrating the 125th anniversary of the birth of the great Paul Robeson, featuring British/Nigerian actor and singer Tayo Aluko. Tayo will be  performing Paul Robeson songs, along with telling stories about Paul Robeson's life, accompanied by Detroit's own, Bill Meyer, on piano.

TICKETS are on a Pay as You Can scale from $10 - $40. GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!

This is a Fundraiser for the sponsors, Michigan Peace Council,  and The Justice for Keith LaMar Campaign

American Bass/Baritone, Paul Leroy Robeson was a Renaissance man who spent most  of his life fighting injustice, for which he was roundly persecuted. He was an actor, orator, athlete, lawyer, singer, author, scholar, civil  rights activist and linguist. Most of all, the “tallest man in the  forest” – he stood 6-foot-3 – was an authentic American Hero.

Nigerian-born Tayo Aluko is an actor, singer and playwright, based in Liverpool, UK, where he worked previously as an architect.

His multi-award-winning play, CALL MR. ROBESON has been performed as far  North as within the Arctic Circle and as far South as New Zealand, with a performance at New York’s Carnegie Hall in February 2012.
