Maybe I can touch people’s hearts better than I can their minds, with the common struggle of the common people.” — Paul Robeson “A través de mi canto, actuación y habla, quiero hacer sonar la libertad. Tal vez pueda tocar los corazones de las personas mejor que sus mentes, con la lucha común de la gente común.” — Paul Robeson “Atravè chante, pèfòmans, ak diskou mwen, mwen vle libète reye. Petèt mwen ka touche kè moun pi byen ke lespri yo, avèk yon eprèv ke n pataje ak moun komen”. — Paul Robeson This year’s 7th annual Remembering Rosa is titled “Remembering Rosa, Remembering Robeson.” Our theme this year focuses on Paul Robeson. Through story and song we will remember NJ’s native son – a renaissance man whose life work explored the relationship between music, solidarity, and freedom – and who spent time with civil rights organizers in Orange in the late 1950s. La séptima edición anual de Remembering Rosa de este año se titula “Remembering Rosa, Remembering Robeson”. Nuestro tema de este año se centra en Paul Robeson. A través de la historia y la canción, recordaremos al hijo nativo de NJ, un hombre del renacimiento cuyo trabajo de vida exploró la relación entre la música, la solidaridad y la libertad, y que pasó un tiempo con los organizadores de los derechos civiles en Orange a finales de la década de 1950. Ane sa se 7èm ane N ap Komemore Rosa ki rele komemorasyon Rosa, komemorasyon Robeson. Tèm nou pou ane sa chita sou Paul Robeson. Atravè istwa ak mizik, n ap sonje pitit natif NJ- yon gason renesans ke travay li te eksplore relasyon ki genyen ant mizik, solidarite, ak libète- e li te pase tan ak òganizatè dwa sivik yo nan Oranj nan fen lane 1950 yo. We strongly recommend wearing a face mask and taking a Covid-19 rapid test before attending. Recomendamos ampliamente usar una máscara facial y hacerse una prueba rápida de Covid-19 antes de asistir.
