Paul Robeson was the son of a slave, an all-american football player, an internationally-renowned singer and actor, a powerful advocate of justice, and the victim of 8 years of black listing and travel bans. One of the places he found refuge was here at KPFA. We’ll pay tribute to his life and work by airing parts of a documentary about his life, Tribute to an Artist, narrated by Sidney Poitier.
Please keep KPFA on the air by donating during our 2016 Winter Fund Drive! You can do that and explore thank you gifts like Tribute to an Artist here.
