Paul Robeson: The Artist in Pictures
There quite simply has never been anyone like Paul Robeson. A trailblazer in every cultural and political arena of which he was a part—as a screen star, stage performer, singer, athlete, and activist—Robeson is a titan of American history. Not only did he help break barriers for African Americans, he worked tirelessly against all kinds of injustice around the world, using his commanding bass-baritone to speak for those who didn’t have a voice. Today, we remember the icon, who was born on April 9, 1898, as a performer and a righteous citizen of the world.
