520 ""Daddy always said it takes a man of peace to stop a
war." Based on the true story of Paul Robeson's visit to
the front lines of the Spanish Civil War, comes this
recollection of his bravery and activism by his
granddaughter, Susan Robeson, with her debut book. When
Susan was a child her father and grandfather told her
family stories over and over. Grandpa Paul was a great man,
a singer with a deep and rumbling voice, a man of peace
and principle who worried about the safety of the children
and families living in countries at war. His songs were
always full of emotion, and evoking the African-American
spirituals of his own father's childhood, he was able to
communicate even with people who didn't speak the same
language. Though it was dangerous, Robeson went to Spain
and traveled to the front lines of the war (in a Buick!).
There, he asked the soldiers to set up speakers facing the
fighters on both sides of the battlefield. And then he
sang.... With gorgeous illustrations from the fine artist
Rod Brown, When Grandpa Stops A War celebrates the
activism and achievements of the great Paul Robeson, and
shows readers the power of art in times of discord and
war."--Provided by publisher.
