Many remember Paul Robeson for his magnificent singing voice and acting ability. But how many are aware that Robeson wrote and spoke about African culture? Thirty years before "black is beautiful", he described his pride in being Negro. Paul Robeson Speaks is a stirring, illustrated collection of speeches, writings, interviews, and press reports by a man whose thoughts and writings contributed greatly to African culture and Black pride.
Long before it was popular to do so, Paul Robeson--all-around athlete, Columbia Law School graduate, and internationally acclaimed actor and singer--placed himself squarely on the side of those who fought racial discrimination. Here is a stirring collection of Robeson's speeches and writings, interviews and newspaper reports, for a vivid portrait of a towering African American, told in his own words. Photos.
