PR in Manchester at Number 70 Oxford Street, Manchester, 17 October 2016 - Book now

PR in Manchester reveals the little known historical connections between Manchester and the American stage, putting a spotlight on the local love for musicals. Dedicated to artist and political activist Paul Robeson, the event will include a screening of Show Boat, a classic musical that addresses racial issues and was released in the Olympic year of 1936. Robeson plays the role of Joe, a stevedores employed by a floating theatre company. There will also be a short illustrated talk by local historian Dominique Tessier, looking at the (pre)history of cinema in Manchester and the contributions of anti-slavery lecturers such as Henry Box Brown.
