Grade 6-9-- This biography covers the major events of Paul Robeson's life from his early days struggling as one of the first blacks to graduate from Rutgers University before World War I, through the phenomenal growth of his career as an actor and singer in the U. S. and abroad, to the relentless persecution he experienced for his association with the Communist party during the McCarthy era. The account focuses on his public life, his career, and his political activities, and emphasizes his continual fight against discrimination and for equality and freedom for all peoples. Larsen clearly admires Robeson, and she glosses over the details of the depression he experienced in his later years. She also assumes a knowledge of history that her audience may not have. This is an interesting book because Robeson is an extraordinary subject; the text, however, never rises above pedestrian prose. A center section contains 14 black-and-white photographs. --Susan Fichtelberg, Woodbridge Public Library, NJ
