Paul Robeson

1351 U Street NW , Wash DC

Paul Robeson Mural U Street NW

The mural concept stems from the Hung Tao Choy Mei Leadership Institutes efforts to introduce Paul Robeson to the present generation; and, re-introduce him to previous generations through the Paul Robeson "Here I Stand" Award gala at the Lincoln Theatre. Lead muralists Cory Stowers and Andrew Katz, their artist conclave (Eric B. Ricks, Maria Miller, Serena Z, Ernesto Zelaya, Jaa), the funding of DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and permission of the building owner brought Paul Robeson, larger than life, to U Street NW.
