(1898 - 1976) American actor and singer. The son of a former slave, Robeson excelled on Broadway in such productions as Emperor Jones, Porgy, and Othello. An interesting in-person item, consists of a program, 4pp. 8" x 10, for the "Tribute to Russia Day" program held in Springfield, Mass., June 22, 1943. Robeson has boldly signed the front of the program, and has also signed three small stickers which were affixed atop each other to the front of the program. Folds, else very good. The event, held to raise funds for Russian causes, was held on the second anniversary of the German invasion of Russia. Robeson was an unrepentant Stalinist, resulting in his being ostracized by many in the entertainment business once the war ended.
