    Livestream Guest Artist Series: Jason McKinney presents “An Evening with Paul Robeson”

    February 15, 2021@7:30 pm-8:30 pm

    Free

    Mon. Feb. 15, 2021 | 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

    Join the Guest Artist Series as we honor and celebrate one of the great Renaissance figures in our history with Phillip Hayes Dean’s Paul Robeson, a musical and spoken portrayal of the world-famous scholar, actor, singer, lawyer, all-American athlete and civil rights activist.

    The performance stars Bass-Baritone Jason McKinney as Robeson, the African-American Renaissance man who rose to prominence in multiple arenas at a time when racism and segregation was rampant in the United States. Robeson used his fame as a performer to become a voice for people who were marginalized both at home and abroad.

    This performance will be open to the public. For the health and safety of all, visitors are required to wear masks and maintain six feet of physical distance while attending all concerts.

    *Livestream will also be available for this event
