Read full description of the books:



I can’t think of a life more singularly suited for the large screen. But if the morass of pusillanimity otherwise known as Hollywood has anything to do about it, I’m not going to hold my breath. So for now we’ll just have to make do with Duberman’s biography. And lucky us. With this captivating and exhaustively researched piece of cultural restoration, Duberman has given us an accounting that is destined to become a classic. The notes – yes, the notes – are as engrossing as the text and I found myself following along and underlining. Robeson was one of the 20th century’s most notable political progressives, performers and intellectuals – a titanic vessel of erudition and appetites. He was a lawyer (graduating with Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas), a holder of 15 varsity letters in four different sports, fluent in over 25 languages, played professional football while becoming valedictorian of his class, his run as Othello is the longest running Shakespeare on Broadway and he maintained a concert career that sold out shows in Vienna, Amsterdam, Prague, Budapest, Nairobi, Berlin, Moscow, New York, Paris – to name a few. The title-holder for one of the largest FBI files on record, Robeson’s friendships ranged from Sergei Eisenstein to Pete Seeger to Indira Gandhi to Linus Pauling to Harry Belafonte to Zero Mostel to Coretta Scott King to Leonard Bernstein to Ramsey Clark – to name a few. It’s sizable (with notes and index it clocks in at about 800 pages) but this riveting narrative never loses its energy. This is jet-propelled history – and in Duberman’s confident hands the voyage is as smooth as ever.
