‘Let Paul Robeson Sing’ Exhibition

When is it?

Ends October 20th

How much is it?

FREE

EVI is hosting an inspirational exhibition about the life of actor, singer, and civil rights activist Paul Robeson. This exhibition chronicles Robeson’s struggle against prejudice and intolerance, his connection with the miners of South Wales, and his work to promote diversity and racial equality. One of his most famous appearances was at the Ebbw Vale National Eisteddfod in August 1958. 64 years on, Robeson’s story returns to Ebbw Vale. All ages can pop in any day during our opening hours for free to learn about Robeson’s fascinating life and important impact in Wales. Try out our new Café at EVI while you’re at it!

“There is no place in the world I like more than Wales.” – Paul Robeson
