keberoxu Story of Paul Robeson - 1981 (8) RE: Story of Paul Robeson - 1981 11 May 19


My music teacher was African-American and was taken
to hear Paul Robeson and to shake his hand:
"I got to look UP," was how my teacher put it.

One of my teacher's great inspirations:
"When one door closed, [Robeson] opened two."

His Othello is recorded,
and after listening to his recording,
I was -- and am -- in awe.
He makes Olivier sound like a bad dream.
