Though once the most recognizable Black artist in the world, Paul Robeson (1898-1976) [who had a strong connection with India] 
has faded from common knowledge in the U.S. The victim of a comprehensive political erasure by the federal
government, he nonetheless recurs in the music, poetry, exhibitions, and landscapes of working people
throughout the African World. This lecture will situate his labors as a singer and activist through his
repetition as a series of metaphysical states during the midcentury moment of his persecution as well as the
years following his death.
