Paul Robeson: 20th Century Renaissance Man, Entertainer & Activist 1994
Description: Paul Robeson was a celebrated African-American Actor, Athlete, Singer, Writer, and Civil Rights Activist. Robeson's many achievements are chronicled in this program, ranging from testing with the NFL to graduating from Columbia Law School, performing on Broadway and in Hollywood movies to founding the American Crusade vs Lynching as well as Council on African Affairs. Robeson was one of the most talented performers of his time and a dedicated humanitarian who ultimately sacrificed fame and fortune for what he believed in. His association with Leftist Politics during the era of the Cold War, and frequent denouncing of American political parties led to his eventual blacklisting with another prominent writers and artists during the McCarthy Era. His talents in all territories are remarkable, and his dedication to attaining a peaceful coexistence between all the folks of the globe is truly admirable.
