The photographs in this book give perhaps a better idea than any text of what Paul Robeson was like as a person, what he stood for and what befell him during the McCarthy period in the United States. In particular, the pictures of the mob jeering and attacking people who had come to hear him sing at Peekskill, New York in 1949 truly say more than thousands of words about the intense racial dynamics of the time and the threats and challenges faced by Robeson and other civil rights leaders.
