Dr. Gerald Horne, Horne has written more than 30 books on the struggles of those marginalized throughout world history and is chair of History and African Studies at University of Houston. He is one of the most gifted and insightful historians on racial matters of his generation.
Gerald Horne discusses the Paul Robeson we've been waiting for: the flesh and blood revolutionary, artistic genius, and fearless opponent of capitalism, racism and colonialism. He recovers in meticulous detail one of the 20th century's greatest freedom fighters. Horne also brings Robeson to life for our own times. Gerald Horne returns Paul Robeson to his rightful place in history, squarely at the center of the Black freedom movement and the global struggle for human rights. As Horne demonstrates, Robeson knew no boundaries or borders-either in art, culture, nations, or in matters of politics. Struggle was his life; the world his terrain.
