Paul Robeson: Here I Stand presents the life and achievements of an extraordinary man. Athlete, singer, and scholar, Robeson was also a charismatic champion of the rights of the poor working man, the disfranchised and people of color.

His story is one of the great dramas of the 20th century, spanning an international canvas of social upheaval and ideological controversy.
