Spoiler alert: THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD.

I was kind of worried that the length of this book was going to get to me, but oh man, this book is so good. Paul Robeson’s life was interesting for sure, never a dull moment, so any biography on him is going to be good. Add to that Martin Duberman’s great writing, and you’ve got a book that is a total package of interesting AND entertaining.

If you look at this book and think it’s probably too long or possibly boring, I encourage you to give it a shot. Paul Robeson’s life is fascinating from start to finish. He’s the son of a former slave/preacher, a sports star, a singer, a movie star, and an amazing civil rights activist. The HUAC ruined his career, but he still fought for his beliefs. He was incredible!

Do yourself a favor and read this book.
