Paul Robeson was one of the most famous people in the world; to his enemies he was also one of the most dangerous. From the 1930s to the 1960s, the African American singer was the voice of the people, both on stage and as a political activist who refused to be silenced as he fought for the rights of the oppressed. Through this story of Robeson's refusal to be defeated, Goodman excavates a rivetting radical history of the postwar era.
