Robeson Paul
Abstrakt
Paul Robeson - the African-American singer, actor, and political activist - was a controversial figure during his lifetime, and continues to be to this day. In recent years, numerous articles and books have come out reevaluating both his accomplishments as an artist and his stand on political issues. While there is general agreement about his tremendous gifts as an actor, singer, athlete, and scholar, much of the debate about his life centers on his controversial politics. This paper adds to the existing analysis on Robeson by focusing on an understudied part of his life; namely, the time he spent in the Soviet Union and the impact that his performances and interaction with the Russian people had on his political beliefs and his feelings about himself.
