    A brief synopsis of Paul Robeson's life - born 9 April 1898 - is provided on the inside front cover and it is enlightening and educational. This book would be a good reference for a biographical study of Paul Robeson and could be used for an oral book report. The illustrations in the book are expressive and enhance the reader's enjoyment of this story. A quote from the book, that should inspire readers and encourage them to aspire to seek their goal(s) and their passion in life, "He learned that people should do the things they really believe in. " Some key points: *he wanted to be a lawyer; *he started a newspaper titled "Freedom"; *he traveled in the U.S.A. and abroad; *U.S.A.' s government barred Paul Robeson from traveling outside of the U.S.A. and told him to stop talking about improving conditions for people in the U.S.A. and in other countries; * after 8 years of court appearances, in 1958, Paul won the right to travel abroad again; *Paul wrote a book titled "Here I Stand"; Paul died on 23 January 1976, after his health began to change in 1959; and *Paul was remembered with a U.S. Postal Service stamp in 2004. You may read about these facts and may other interesting events in Paul's life in this book. **Great for educational and after-school learning.
