I Go on Singing: Paul Robeson's Life in his Words & Songs

NMU Logo on bricks

Virtual Event

The Beaumier UP Heritage Center presents "I Go on Singing; Paul Robeson's Life in His Words & Songs" in conjunction with our current exhibition "Conflict & Resolve: Labor in the Upper Peninsula" and with support from the NMU President's Committee on Diversity. This virtual event presented by Anthony Brown features equal parts documentary and live concert experience, which include discussions from legendary folk singer and friend Pete Seeger, and Robeson's original arrangements of favorites such as "Wade in the Water" "Ol' Man River" and "It Ain't Necessarily So". The program is available from April 9 - May 30. The stream is free to NMU students and available to the public for $5 / ticket. Tickets and the stream can be accessed at https://nmu.universitytickets.com/. 

Robeson made a name for himself as a performer in the early 1900s. He started by singing for spending money during his time at Rutgers University, where he was also an informal member of the Glee Club, but could not perform due to racist club policies. A talented baritone, Robeson later garnered international attention for leading roles in London productions. As his career advanced, Robeson excelled in activism for international workers and minority rights. In April of 1946, Robeson visited Ishpeming to perform and support the cause of the striking iron miners. 
Presenter Anthony Brown reflects on Robeson: "Here was an African American man, 'the tallest tree in the forest,' who had not only the intellect and command of language, but also the courage to stand up and speak out for what he believed". 

American baritone, Anthony Brown, promotes peace and reconciliation through his music. His work takes him to political host spots in Africa, South America, Europe and Asia. His stirring performance connect people across race, language, religion and culture and help them focus on how we’re each a part of the great family of humanity. Much like Paul Robeson, Brown believes that our love of music makes us one. 

The Beaumier UP Heritage Center is a museum and educational center on the campus of Northern Michigan University. It celebrates the history and culture of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Between the World and Me: In Conversation

DCRP logo

Virtual Event

The Diversity Common Reader Program, in collaboration with the NMU Theatre and Dance Department and North x North Coast, is proud to present a discussion of Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me, a moving work of nonfiction that explores what it means to live in a black body in contemporary America. Between the World and Me folds trenchant social critique into an intimate letter addressed to the author's son, and is a singular and deeply compelling treatment of issues at the heart of the antiracist protests that have defined 2020.

 

This event is a panel discussion about the book moderated by Dr. Keenan Colquitt. Those who reserve tickets will receive a link to the virtual panel discussion 24 hours prior to the event.
