Paul Robeson - tribute filmCaribbean Stories poetry competition

Reading Museum were conducting research into life in Reading during the 1960s, when we discovered quite an awe-inspiring photograph, showing none other than Paul Robeson, one of the fathers of the American Civil Rights movement, performing at Reading Concert Hall. Students of black history will be familiar with the life and works of Paul Robeson (1898-1976), a brilliant and hugely multi-talented 20th century American singer, actor, artist, and political activist. In 2019, the National Portrait Gallery launched a project called Coming Home. This involves iconic portraits of sitters being returned to places with which they bear a historical significance. After discussion with representatives of Reading’s African & Caribbean Community and the National Portrait Gallery, it was agreed that the story of Robeson in Reading presented a fantastic opportunity for the portrait to be loaned to Reading Museum.

 

We created film reflecting the legacy of Paul Robeson and his performance in Reading.
