Online Llafur Event 6 – ‘The Proud Valley’ – Paul Robeson and Wales
In the final chapter of Llafur’s summer series, we conclude with a discussion on the life of Paul Robeson and his connections to Wales. 80 years after the release of ‘The Proud Valley’ in 1940, join Beverley Humphreys, Tayo Aluko and Mark Rhodes to reflect upon a bond forged in the winter of 1929 and that endures today.
