Paul Robeson - Sings Negro Spirituals (1962)

Paul Robeson excelled as an athlete, actor, singer, and activist, qualifying him as a contemporary renaissance man. His early accomplishments as a professional football player, Columbia law school graduate, and an actor on Broadway in the 1920s seemed but a prologue to even greater achievements to come. Involvement with the political left in the 1940s, however, led to a confrontation with the House of Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in the late 1940s. He was blacklisted, his passport was revoked, and his career came to a halt.              

"Sings Negro Spirituals" is an album showcasing Paul Robeson's inimitable baritone voice across a range of folksongs and spirituals with piano accompaniment from Alan Booth.
