Paul Robeson, b. April 9, 1898

Paul Leroy Robeson (April 9, 1898 – January 23, 1976)

Thanks to Professor Eric M. Fink of Elon University Law School for the following video of Paul Robeson singing “Joe Hill.”

I was unable to reach the Paul Robeson Foundation website this morning. I suspect it was overwhelmed by visits from around the world.

Here’s the Wikipedia entry on Robeson, with wonderful references, resources, and links, in addition to essential biographical information.
