PAUL ROBESON. Post Card Photograph signed: "Paul Robeson". Sepia, 3x4¾. Singer, actor and athlete Paul Robeson (1898-1976), the son of a former slave and an All-America football player at Rutgers (1917, 1918), starred on Broadway in Show Boat in 1926, introducing "Ol Man River", a song written for him by Jerome Kern. Praised as an "eloquent, impressive, and convincing" actor, Robeson had previously been tapped by playwright Eugene O'Neill to star in a revival of his The Emperor Jones (1924). He later premiered in O'Neill's All God's Chillun Got Wings. Robeson's commanding presence and resonant bass voice were equally impressive in his efforts to urge Blacks to embrace their African heritage. Signature light but legible. Soiled at lower portion. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 13¼x22.
