Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

For more than 20 years, Robeson was "close aide and personal representative" to his father, actor and activist Paul Robeson Sr. Robeson's latest book, following Paul Robeson Jr. Speaks to America: The Politics of Multiculturalism and The Undiscovered Paul Robeson, An Artist's Journey, continues the elder Robeson's tradition of speaking out thoughtfully and frankly, and sketches a vision of American history where Black Americans, from slavery forward, have been forced to live a "separate reality" from white Americans. He begins with the race implications of 9/11, where he finds hurtful spin by Giuliani ("The Mayor's implied message was clear: We have a lily-white fire department, and we're going to keep it that way"), and moves on to "Eight Coups in American History" ("George Bush's mission in the White House is to establish nationwide a modern version of the old Confederacy based on the New South"), an account of the War on Terror and of voter fraud in the last two presidential elections, and a program for Black Americans to support the Progressive party along class lines. Like most "my vision for America" books, this one is thin on documentation, but thick with passion.

From Booklist

Robeson critiques America as sharply as his famous father did. His commentary rooted in the concepts expounded by our nation's Founding Fathers, Robeson expands on the idea of "liberty" for the elite few to an active concept of freedom yet to be obtained by the many. From the perspective of black cultural and spiritual roots, he examines several controversial issues: 9/11, political coups in America, the war on terror, economics, race, and class. He notes that black America has experienced unofficial state and mob terror, provoking an alternative response that is ignored by the media. He argues that political coups have occurred, with right-wing interests in battle with progressive forces and liberals playing the center. Robeson integrates well a historic overview into contemporary significance for discussing America's current dilemmas. His recognition that black leadership has been blinded by unrecognized class interest is worthy of further development. Readers need not agree with Robeson's perspective to appreciate the value of his book as a takeoff point for further discussion of contemporary issues of American cultural politics. Vernon Ford
