520    This book locates Robeson's extraordinary accomplishments 
       in the tumultuous events of twentieth-century history. 
       Paul Robeson was, at points in his life, an actor, singer,
       football player, political activist and writer, one of the
       most diversely talented members of the Harlem Renaissance.
       Swindall centers Robeson's story around the argument that 
       while Robeson leaned toward Socialism, a Pan-African 
       perspective is fundamental to understanding his life as an
       artist and political advocate. Many previous works on 
       Robeson have focused primarily on his involvement with the
       US Communist Party, paying little attention to the broader
       African influences on his politics and art. With each 
       chapter focused on a decade of his life, this book affords
       us a fresh look at his story, and the ways in which the 
       struggles, successes and studies of his formative years 
       came to shape him as an artist, activist and man later on.
