Tayo Aluko in character as Paul Robeson.

Tayo Aluko can't get enough of Paul Robeson.  The singer/actor/activist sang "Old Man River" like nobody else, and left his stamp on American politics as well. 

Tayo Aluko gets to slip into the skin of the great performer in the one-man play "Call Mr. Robeson," which Aluko brings back to Ashland August 12-15.  Tayo Aluko joins us once again to explore the person he portrays and the challenges in portraying him.
