Paul Robeson Jr was the grandson of a slave, and son of a prominent and controversial African American actor, singer, and activist.
Formally trained as an electrical engineer, Robeson soon followed in the footsteps of his famous father, becoming an activist in his own right.
He also spent time organizing and archiving his father’s papers, films, and music memorabilia.
I first met and interviewed Paul Robeson Jr. In 1993. We met again in 2007, when he wrote a book called A Black Way of Seeing.
And keep your mind open as you hear this interview, Robeson will challenge you to think differently about everything, regardless of your background.
So here now, from 2007, Paul Robeson Jr.
Paul Robeson Jr. died in 2014. He was 86.
