Summary
Paul Robeson, one of the towering musical and cultural figures of the 20th century, was active in many fields apart from music. In his youth he was an outstanding athlete and scholar, and then went on to achieve fame as an actor, singer, recording artist and film star. Later in life he espoused a number of political causes, including the civil rights movement, and despite bitter opposition from the US authorities, he vigorously fought discrimination, not only against black people but also the under-privileged of all races and creeds
