Free Summer Concert Series

Call Mr. Robeson - A Life, with Songs


The Multicultural Arts Center with Cambridge Arts Summer in the City is proud to present Call Mr. Robeson, A Life, With Songs, written and performed by Tayo Aluko, with live piano accompaniment by Timothy Steele. This performance will be FREE on August 22, 2019 at 7:30pm and is great for families, friends, couples, and those of all ages looking to enjoy a great community based music event.


This free performance of Call Mr.Robeson at the Multicultural Arts Center is both important and timely in its showing. Historically, we have used song to unify within our communities during times of oppression and hardship. This performance provides Boston and Cambridge a space to come together and reflect on the civil rights activism of Paul Robeson during a time where the treatment of people of color in communities across the country has become increasingly intolerable. I hope that this concert can bolster our hope and steps towards change, nurture community dialogue about issues we are facing within todays political climate, and fosters our ability to support and overcome the hardships we are facing.


This show is free and open to the public, but seating is limited; reservations recommended.

The Multicultural Arts Center is excited to present Portuguese People and Places, a gallery exhibition by José Santos.  José Santos uses watercolor and acrylic paintings informed by his time in Portugal to take the viewer on a vibrant journey through his past. While his paintings are autobiographical, he also uses his paintings to unpack questions about the visual representations of ethnicity and culture.
