The story of one of America's foremost African-American citizens, whose courageous stance against oppression and inequality was a forerunner to the civil rights movement of the 1960s. It examines his remarkable life and achievements as a scholar, athlete, artist, social activist and humanitarian. It traces Robeson's journey from class valedictorian at university to international stardom and his ultimate fall from grace because of his political views, with which an initially adoring American public could not come to terms.
