Join the Social Ministry Team for a screening and discussion about the 1999 American Masters film, Paul Robeson: Here I Stand, which presents the life and achievements of an extraordinary man.

Athlete, singer,and scholar, Robeson was also a charismatic champion of the rights of the poor working man, the disfranchised and people of color. He led a life in the vanguard of many movements, achieved international acclaim for his music and suffered tremendous personal sacrifice. His story is one of the great dramas of the 20th century – spanning an international canvas of social upheaval and ideological controversy. American Masters/Paul Robeson: Here I Stand blends voices, music visual montages and interviews into a seamless portrait of a remarkable man.
