Paul Robeson (1898 - 1976)

An American renaissance man who was one of Rutgers University’s; most famous graduates, a star athlete, singer, actor, lawyer, and political activist and whose stance against black disenfranchisement was a precursor to the modern civil-rights movement; years in “exile,” 1950-1958, when he was forbidden to leave the U.S. when his passport was revoked because of his sympathetic statements about the Soviet Union and his outspoken speeches abroad about the treatment of blacks in America; soon after his passport was returned, he lived in the U.K. until 1963.
