Summary

Summary

Paul Robeson was a distinguished and widely acclaimed figure in music, theater and film; as a singer, actor and educator, Robeson was one of the best known and best respected African Americans of the 1930's. However, Robeson was also politically outspoken as few performers were in his day, and his brave support of a variety of progressive causes gained him a reputation as a committed leftist at a time when that was career suicide in the entertainment industry. Paul Robeson: Here I Stand explores his life as an artist, an activist and a human being, featuring rare film of Robeson in concert (including his classic version of "Ol' Man River"), clips from his movies, newsreel footage and interviews with his friends and associates, including Harry Belafonte, Pete Seeger and Uta Hagen. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
