I was not able to watch, but sent a few words about my life-long interest in Robeson,which the PRHM staff said they would read out.

An evening of poetry and music was held on 25 February during US BHM to commemorate Robeson’s fight against racism and contribution to workers’ internationalism.https://socialistproject.ca/leftstreamed-video/voices-beyond-borders-musical-tribute-paul-robeson
