University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the development of Robeson’s writing on culture in the 1930s. This decade marked the maturation of his political thinking and was the key moment when his politics began to conjoin with his art. This progress is explored through fundamental events, including Robeson’s portrayal of Toussaint L’Ouverture, his published writing on African culture, and his visit to the front of the Spanish civil war.

Keywords:   Paul Robeson, writing, culture, political thinking, African American actors, Toussaint L’Ouverture, African culture, Spanish civil war
