Paul Robeson

Singer, actor and activist Paul Robeson was known as much for being outspoken about racial discrimination, which made him a target of federal authorities, as he was for his overwhelming talent. Before Sidney Poitier or Denzel Washington, Robeson was America's first Black male movie star. (Photo: Courtesy WikiCommons)
