The Politics of Paul Robeson's Othello

Lindsey R. Swindall

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter discusses the blurring line between Robeson the artist and Robeson the activist in the 1940s. During this time, his political activities added depth to his Othello interpretation, while his political involvement can be conceptualized as performance outside of the formal theater. In all arenas, he advocated against fascism and for the dignity of the African American community.

Keywords:   Paul Robeson, African American actors, political activist, antifascism, African American community
