"All Men Are Brothers"
Paul travelled the world using his art as his weapon to fight against oppression and for self determination for all people. His home turf and land of his birth was not off limits as he marched with others to advance the cause of civil rights and workers rights.
He took his message of freedom and justice to the White House to petition the President to introduce anti-lynching legislation. He never failed to answer the call from those in need of his celebrity to advance their cause even risking great danger by visiting the front lines and hospitals with his wife Essie during the Spanish civil war.
"Every artist, every scientist, must decide now where he stands. He has no alternative. There is no standing above the conflict on Olympian heights. There are no impartial observers."
-– Paul Robeson
