ABOUT “PAUL ROBESON: HERE I STAND”
Paul Robeson: Here I Stand presents the life and achievements of an extraordinary man. Athlete, singer, and scholar, Robeson was also a charismatic champion of the rights of working people, the disfranchised, and people of color. He led a life in the vanguard of many movements, achieved international acclaim for his music and suffered tremendous personal sacrifice. His story is one of the great dramas of the 20th century-spanning an international canvas of social upheaval and ideological controversy. Paul Robeson: Here I Stand blends voices, music visual montages, and interviews into a seamless portrait of a remarkable man.
