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 the theater and Hollywood to become one of the most important political activists of his generation. Gerald Horne's 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 -- From back cover.

Propagandistic in the style of the Daily Worker or People's World. Everything Robeson did was the best, the biggest, the most important. An amazing life poorly presented.
