“I Go On Singing” Is A Live Stage Show About The Life of Paul Robeson  

Hesston College faculty member, Anthony Brown portrays Robeson.

Once in a lifetime a human being comes along who stands head and shoulders above the rest. Paul Robeson was such a man. 
An all-American athlete, scholar, international recording artist and star of the stage and screen, in his day, Robeson was the best-known African American entertainer in the world… and his life was a courageous example of integrity and discipline in the service of peace. 
The story of this American hero who struggled and triumphed comes alive in a rousing 90-minute song-filled multi-media presentation, “I Go On Singing,” Paul Robeson’s Life In His Words and Songs, performed by the gifted American baritone and international ambassador of peace, Anthony Brown. 
Accompanied by a pianist, narrator and archival video, Brown reveals Robeson as a towering figure in American history and a champion for peace and human rights for much of the 20th Century. 
Told in Robeson’s own words using many first-hand accounts from his autobiography, “Here I Stand,” the show traces his humble beginnings as a preacher’s son in Princeton, NJ, to his international celebrity as one of the best-known entertainers in the world. 
 
“I Go On Singing” brings music and history alive with equal parts documentary and live concert experience. Musical numbers range from Spirituals to Broadway.
