Listen to the introduction and first song of the Transatlantic Welsh Concert performed by Paul Robeson in 1957 after his passport was revoked and he was unable to travel to the UK. The clip on YouTube includes the introduction to the concert by Will Paynter, president of the South Wales Miners, as well as Paul Robeson’s comments and “Didn’t My Lord Deliver Daniel.” The SAIN Wales label includes a biography of Robeson through a Welsh lens as well as a downloadable copy of Robeson’s complete Transatlantic Exchange Concerts.
Visiting Wales’s YouTube site includes a brief profile of Paul Robeson highlighting his performances and political work in Wales, a connection begun with the POOL Group circle that produced Borderline.
Although H.D.’s circle extends beyond the people in her files of correspondence, it is possible to map her circle of friends, acquaintances, and correspondents, based on her archives. The map below shows all of her correspondents based on the finding aids in the Beinecke, Bryn Mawr, and several other special collections libraries (Go to SpicyNodes to see it in full screen). Any overlaps with Bryher’s files of correspondence are also indicated. Click any name to expand and explore further connections. Contacts are nested under the people who introduced H.D. to them.
