The Acclaimed One Man Show "The World is My Home: The Life of Paul Robeson"
It is the number one show on various corporate and educational circuits and a favorite on the topics of tolerance, diversity and social justice.
Paul Robeson said during World War II, “Nations may go to war, but it is arts and culture that unite us.” Paul Robeson’s life exemplifies all the qualities that our society holds dear, including the courage and compassion that makes America great. He was influenced by his father who dreamed of a colorblind society. He spoke out against the Holocaust, visited Warsaw ghettos in Poland & co-founded the OAU (Organization for African Unity) with WEB Dubois.
This L.A. based show is poignant, humorous, informative and magnificent. It has been performed at more than 200 universities including Yale, Columbia and UCLA and in playhouses and U.S. Embassies around the world.
Classically trained, Stogie Kenyatta is a renowned actor, writer and comedian. He developed this one man show as a personal quest to educate a younger generation about Paul Robeson. A talented, intellectually gifted, actor, athlete, singer, human rights activist, Paul Robeson was also a world citizen whose life was filled with triumph and tragedy as he fought for the liberation of people of color.
