Paul Robeson: The Artist As a Revolutionary - Book
Contribution: $50.00

Product Code: OB0728

Gerald Horne's new biography uses Robeson's remarkable and revolutionary life to
tell the story of the 20th century's great political struggles: against racism,
against colonialism, and for international socialism. This critical and
searching account provides an opportunity for readers to comprehend the triumphs
and tragedies of the revolutionary progressive movement of which Robeson was not
just a part, but, perhaps, its most resonant symbol.

A world-famous singer and actor, a trained lawyer, an early star of American
professional football and a polyglot who spoke over a dozen languages. These
could be the crowning achievements of a life well-lived, yet for Paul Robeson
the higher calling of social justice led him to abandon both the NFL and
Hollywood and become one of the most important political activists of his
generation - battling both Jim Crow and Joseph McCarthy.
