Paul Robeson, born in the USA, could not make his way as a lawyer because he was black. Later, he discovered his gift for singing, and he used it to make people understand what it feels like to be oppressed. After World War II, in the general witch-hunt against those who spoke out for the downtrodden, he was shamefully persecuted as an alleged communist. He was forbidden to travel abroad, but that could not silence that wonderful deep voice of his, which was heard all over the world, singing for peace and justice.
