The Context of White Supremacy hosts our fourth study session on Dr. Gerald Horne’s biography, Paul Robeson: The Artist As Revolutionary. Dr. Horne holds the Moores Professorship of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston. He’s authored a bounty of texts and articles that detail what Racism/White Supremacy is and how it operates globally. His 2016 treatment of Robeson chronicles the latter’s illustrious achievements as a linguist, scholar, athlete and entertainer. Robeson used the his enormous bounty of talent to address the problem of Racism. Last week’s session detailed the Robesons’s increasing political awareness. Dr. Horne writes that Paul Robeson became disinterested in lavish spending (showoffism) which is lucrative acting career provided. Much like 21st century racist entertainment, Robeson was frequently asked to perform in plays that celebrated global White Domination and black inferiority. With his lofty accomplishments, Robeson remained humble enough to accept criticism from peers and friends like Marcus Garvey and Ben Davis. He lamented being offered rubbish roles, while being denied the chance to portray heavyweight boxing champion Joe Louis.
