New Brunswick: Rutgers UP and The Paul Robeson Cultural Center.
Stewart, Jeffrey C., ed. Paul Robeson: Artist and Citizen. New Brunswick: Rutgers UP and The Paul Robeson Cultural Center, 1998. 369 pp. $40.00 cloth/$22.00 paper. Martin Duberman's massive biography is the fullest record of Paul Robeson's remarkable life and career, but Jeffrey Stewart's handsome oversized paperback volume is richly satisfying. John Hope Franklin, David Levering Lewis, Lloyd Brown, Derrick Bell, Martin Duberman, and Gerald Home are among the distinguished contributors of sixteen substantial essays on various aspects of Robeson's multifaceted life and activities. Best of all, though, are the 227 black-and-white illustrations and the fourteen color plates. This volume belongs in the library of every reader of African American Review.
