The product of a lifetime of struggle and reflection, Cruse's book is a singular amalgam of cultural history, passionate disputation, and deeply considered analysis of the relationship between American blacks and American society. Reviewing black intellectual life from the Harlem Renaissance through the 1960s, Cruse discusses the legacy (and offers memorably acid-edged portraits) of figures such as Paul Robeson, Lorraine Hansberry, and James Baldwin, arguing that their work was marked by a failure to understand the specifically American character of racism in the United States. This supplies the background to Cruse's controversial critique of both integrationism and black nationalism and to his claim that black Americans will only assume a just place within American life when they develop their own distinctive centers of cultural and economic influence. For Cruse's most important accomplishment may well be his rejection of the cliches of the melting pot in favor of a vision of Americanness as an arena of necessary and vital contention, an open and ongoing struggle."--BOOK JACKET13375ocn682623265file20100.50Swindall, Lindsey RThe politics of Paul Robeson's OthelloBiographyLindsey R. Swindall examines the historical and political context of acclaimed African American actor Paul Robeson's three portrayals of Shakespeare's Othello in the United Kingdom and the United States. These performances took place in London in 1930, on Broadway in 1943, and in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1959. All three of the productions, when considered together, provide an intriguing glimpse into Robeson's artistry as well as his political activism. The Politics of Paul Robeson's Othello maintains that Robeson's development into a politically minded artist explicates the broader issue of the role of the African American artist in times of crisis. Robeson (1898-1976) fervently believed that political engagement was an inherent component of the role of the artist in society, and his performances demonstrate this conviction. In the 1930 production, audiences and critics alike confronted the question: Should a black actor play Othello in an otherwise all-white cast? In the 1943 production on Broadway, Robeson consciously used the role as a form for questioning theater segregation both onstage and in the seats. In 1959, after he had become well known for his leftist views and sympathies with Communism, his performance in a major Stratford-upon-Avon production called into question whether audiences could accept onstage an African American who held radical-and increasingly unpopular-political views. Swindall thoughtfully uses Robeson's Othello performances as a collective lens to analyze the actor and activist's political and intellectual development+-+897382951610083ocn016526345book19880.07Ehrlich, ScottPaul RobesonJuvenile worksBiographyA biography of the black man who became both a famous singer and a controversial figure in world politics. A biography of this talented actor, singer, and athlete whose career suffered for his civil rights activities and Communist affiliations. The story of Robeson's life is interspersed with the philosophies of other major black figures including Marcus Garvey & W. E. B. du Bois, along with their ideas on handling discrimination. Robeson's troubles during the McCarthy era are also covered. Students will be surprised to see how his freedom was curtailed because he spoke out about topics that were unpopular at the time.

"Through subtle readings of their films and a wealth of background material, he goes on to survey the development of each star's image in relation to particular social groups. Monroe is discussed in the context of 1950s sexuality and her perceived status as a victim of patriarchy; Robeson in terms of black identity and how he used his status to further anti-racist and socialist causes; and Garland as a gay icon."--Jacket+-+25011876857921ocn045841515book20010.35Boyle, Sheila TullyPaul Robeson : the years of promise and achievementBiography"The son of a former slave, Paul Robeson (1898-1976) rose to become an All-American athlete, a Phi Beta Kappa student, an internationally celebrated singer and actor, and a champion of racial equality.

A dead man lies on the bed, while his killer batters the room door, which is going to pieces as quickly as the dentist & rsquo;s jacket. Somehow, this entire mess is Albert Einstein & rsquo;s fault. Two nefarious groups have been threatening the great physicist. One, a ring of blackmailers who claim to have evidence that he has been passing nuclear secrets to Russia. The other, a gang of Nazi assassins intent on doing away one of the most famous opponents of Hitler & rsquo;s rule. Einstein hires Toby Peters to nip both problems in the bud.
