    When did this amazing man sleep? He accomplished dreams of not only himself but things that would take a lifetime for any normal person to finish; Acting,writting, athelete, scholar, and an outspoken poltical activist. I would love to spend just a minute in his head. I think he would have to be insane in order to be this genius. PAUL ROBESON your life gave a new meaning to the phrase; self-fullment.

    Awesome timeline of the life of Paul Robeson. Paul Robeson was a very intelligent person in his lifetime. I believe Robeson was a very influential figue for the African Americans in the time of racism.

    Paul Robeson is an amazing individual, and it’s hard to find information on him. On January 9, 2009, this video was NOT available. Please attend to this, as many people would like to know more about him. Thank you.
