Personal Fact of Paul Robeson

Paul Robeson was one of the most talented and outstanding African-American singers and actors. A multi-talented man, he started his career as an athlete by serving as the football player for the Rutgers University. Simultaneously, he made his international debut in singing and acting in theatre and films. Not limiting his indulgences to just artistic endeavours, he played a quintessential role in political activism and actively advocated against Spanish Civil War, fascism, and social injustice.

His radical thought on anti-communalism and anti-imperialism led him to be blacklisted from the country. However, he did not give up on his struggle for equality and continuously voiced out and lashed the supporters of social injustice. He was ripped off his passport which did not allow him to perform outside America but this did not affect him as he continued to publish his thoughts, views and opinion in a periodical, criticizing U. S. policies.

It was only later in his life that he secluded from public appearance due to health concerns. Robeson was bestowed with a number of prestigious awards posthumously for his contributions as an actor and activist.
