In Search of Paul Robeson

Author Jeff Sparrow tells Robeson’s story and explores his relevance to contemporary political movements in a new book: No Way But This. He will be in conversation with journalist Ellie Mae O’Hagan.


Paul Robeson was a modern renaissance man: lawyer, linguist, actor, professional athlete, civil rights activist and one of the greatest singers of the twentieth century. The son of an escaped slave, Robeson became an international superstar before his socialist political convictions brought him undone in the Mccarthy era.

Author Jeff Sparrow tells Robeson’s story and explores his relevance to contemporary political movements in a new book: No Way But This. He will be in conversation with journalist Ellie Mae O’Hagan.
