Paul Robeson - Artist Entrepreneur?

Paul Robeson was an American singer and actor who some call "the ultimate artist entrepreneur." He became involved with the Civil Rights Movement and held a concert for peace in Peekskill, New York which, due to an angry mob, is now remembered as the "Peekskill Riots." The year was 1949.  

Now all these years later, a collaboration between the publication you are reading (Entertainment Entrepreneurship) and Wurknprogress occured when Rodger Taylor (Interviewer), Matt Rudansky (Coordinator) and John Yianni Stamas (Videographer) interviewed someone who was at the riots (special thanks to Sean Mahony). An excerpt from this video will be seen on this site in two weeks. If you are a member of the newsletter, be sure to watch for it.

Ann Mahony stood up for something she believed in by attending a controversial concert and responded peacefully toward the acts of aggression coming from the mob. Therefore she has been nominated for a "Citizen's Pia" at the Platinum Pias Community and Education Awards coming Monday evening, March 21, at DCTV Community Media Center.

And you can show your support for Ann Mahony by signing up for the NYC Make a Difference Newsletter at Entertainment Entrepreneurship, then sending a testimonial to the email you'll find on the subscribe completed page. Judges do factor in "people's choice" into the final decision criteria.

Why do some people call Paul Robeson "the ultimate artist entrepreneur?" Was it because he was an activist for change, yet maintained a livelyhood? Or because of his artistic and entrepreneurial accomplishments?

Editor of Wurknprogress, Rodger Taylor gives us a possible clue when he says:

"It could have been because he kept reinventing himself."
