How Paul Robeson found his political voice in the Welsh valleys | Books | The Guardian

'After welcoming the delegates, he announced that they would soon hear from Paul Robeson, who’d be joining them via a transatlantic telephone line. '

'Paul Robeson possessed one of the most beautiful voices of the 20th century. '

'He was ready, both intellectually and emotionally, for the encounter with the Welsh labour movement.“There was just something,” Humphreys said, “that drew Welsh people and Paul Robeson together. '

'By accident, he’d encountered a party of Welsh miners from the Rhondda valley. '

'The walls held huge photos of Paul Robeson: in his football helmet on the field at Rutgers [University]; on a concert stage, his mouth open in song; marching on a picket line. '
