Paul Robeson

Paul Robeson gave a concert in Huddersfield, must have been about 1958 – I was in the audience. I was about 8, and my little brother was very small. He started crying, and my mother got up to take him out of the auditorium, leaving my two elder sisters and me with our father. “Don’t take the little feller away,” said Robeson, and sang a lullaby – and miraculously my little brother stopped crying.
