Summary

Speak Of Me As I Am tells the story of one of America's foremost African-American citizens, whose courageous stance against oppression and inequality was a forerunner to the civil rights movement of the 1960s. It examines his remarkable life and achievements as a scholar, athlete, artist, social activist and humanitarian. His passion for the stage and screen was matched by his dedication to social justice. This film weaves together archive footage of Robeson and interviews with commentators including biographer, Martin Duberman.


Summary

His achievements as a scholar, artist, athlete, social activist, and humanitarian are well documented, and now the life of the man whose passion for social equality inspired a nation is explored in a documentary comprised of interviews, archival clips, and rare footage of the man himself. Official Paul Robeson biographer Martin Duberman lends his comprehensive expertise to a portrait of the man whose talent and dedication to social justice made him an international icon of peace and equality. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
