"Using Theater as a vehicle for Social change, Kenyatta is powerful & poignant, entertaining & educational, heartfelt & humorous, the show celebrates our common humanity." Cape Cod Times
Santa Monica Playhouse and Stogie Kenyatta present Kenyatta’s acclaimed solo show about African-American artist/activist Paul Robeson honoring the Brotherhood of Man for Martin Luther King.
The show will stream live on January 9 and an on-demand playback will be available throughout January 2021.
Robeson was witness to the artistic wonders of the Harlem Renaissance and the Jazz-Be bop era. His life’s work celebrates our common humanity as he fought globally for social justice. “Armed with nothing more than the strength of his convictions and his vision of a world where men live as brothers. His message was his life," says Kenyatta. “He shows us that in spite of our differences, we still have more in common than we do in conflict.”
“Highly Recommended! Noteworthy!” Santa Monica Daily Press
The World Is My Home – The Life of Paul Robeson, which Kenyatta calls the most challenging performance of his career, and the piece of work of which he is most proud, is now the number one show on the American college scene and won a 2013 NAACP award.
Written and performed by Jamaican born and Brooklyn bred Stogie Kenyatta
