Paul Robeson

PAUL ROBESON d1976. Singer and actor best remembered for his powerful rendition of "Ol Man River" in Showboat.

He was an exceptional athlete / scholar and author ; however his radical activist views and political beliefs ultimately damaged his career and erased his popularity. He died in 1976 in seclusion after many years suffering poor health.
