“The Paul Robeson Project”

Ever heard of Paul Robeson?
He is an internationally renowned and celebrated actor, athlete, lawyer, singer and activist.  Yet, he is all but erased from mainstream US history. Paul Robeson is pre Civil Rights Movement and smack dab Jim Crow and McCarthyism. Despite these obstacles, he achieves highly.  Despite being a high achiever, human flaws arise…

This lecture demonstration about Paul Robeson by “Paul” shares his history, experiences, and what elements make up his particular brand of icon.

“Where My Girls At?” is a “thoughtful, provocative, and insanely funny” one woman show written and performed by the “multi-talented” Micia Mosely. Portraying five drastically different characters representing the diversity of Black lesbian experiences, Micia challenges the notion that there is only one way to be Black or queer in the 21st century. A phenomenal one hour performance steeped in improv and audience participation, Where My Girls At? has thrilled audiences across the country from San Francisco, Detroit and New York to Amherst, Chapel Hill and Honolulu. A New York Innovative Theater Award Nominee, the show, while hilarious, continues to tackle difficult issues including inter and intra-group racism, sexism, and homophobia.


Written & Performed by Micia Mosely
