The Politics of Paul Robeson's Othello

Lindsey R. Swindall

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter describes Robeson’s activities during the pivotal years of the civil rights movement. These include his return to the US in December 1963 to retire. In September 1964, after the signing of the Civil Rights Act that summer, Robeson published an article in the Afro-American that commented on his return as well as present issues. In April 1965, an event was held for Robeson hosted by the journal Freedomway. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the unique melding of Robeson’s politics with his artistic talent that illuminated the role of the artist during times of crisis.
