We Are The Media

Night owl chat – Paul Robeson

True story: Every once in a while, I’ll break out into “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”. And invariably, it’s Paul Robeson who tries to come out. He doesn’t, but once you hear him singing that song, no other voice can fill it  in your head.

For our night owl chat, some of the inestimable Paul Robeson.
