While clearing out their late mother's belongings in August 2020, two siblings discover a package containing a record, suggesting a possible romantic link between their grandmother and Paul Robeson, dating back to 1949.|
As they watch coverage of protests at the latest police shooting happening down the road from them, they recall their mother telling them of protests at a Robeson concert outside Peekskill NY on September 4, 1949.
They realise that as a child, she had witnessed the best and the worst of their country in violent conflict in the same way as was unfolding now in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Contains some racist and anti-Semitic language.
This is an imagined story based around the Peekskill and Kenosha happenings.
Length: 55 minutes. Followed by Q&A with the author.
