Tributes: Paul Robeson, Jr.
Monday, April 28, 2014
Paul Robeson, Jr. had the deeply resonant voice of his father, as well as the tall build of the former actor, singer, and civil rights activist. And he spent a lifetime working to preserve that legacy. He not only wrote two books about his father, but created an archive of his writings and films at Howard University, and accepted a Grammy on his behalf in 1998. Paul Robeson, Jr. died at the age of 86. Leonard last spoke with him in August of 2001.
