An American giant of 20th-century music, Paul Robeson stood tall against racism, McCarthyism, and blacklisting to proclaim the majesty of African-American culture. Recorded on his own Othello label in the 1950s, Robeson’s voice rings out with traditional spirituals and folk melodies from around the globe inspiring international audiences to embrace him as the people’s bard of faith, hope, and freedom. 34-page booklet, historic photos, 74 minutes.

This recording is part of the Smithsonian Folkways African American Legacy series, co-presented with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
