Product Description

Documentary that tells the story of one of America's foremost African-American citizens, whose courageous stance against opression and inequality was a forerunner to the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Weaving together archive footage of Robeson and interviews with commentators, the film captures the courage and determination that drove Robeson to succeed as a black artist in a white world, to fight against racial inequality in the US and combat oppression around the globe.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor and biased-give it a miss! 23 Dec 2010
Sad that the BBC is behind such a maudlin and false interpretation of an artist who meant so much to British people and still is loved in the UK. What the BBC has to offer on Robeson, frankly is an embarrassment! Still, "Speak of me as I am" is recommended if only for the sake of completion in seeing all that is out their on Robeson. DO watch "Here I Stand: American Master PBS" and the less sophisticated (shot on 16,mm during the late 70's on a lower budget) but superior in content and structure 'Tallest Tree in the Forest" directed by Gil Noble, FIRST though. Both are FAR superior to this.

4.0 out of 5 stars a fine British documentary 19 Sep 2010
This British production stresses the British dimension of Robeson's career and biography. It works well together with "Paul Robeson: Here I Stand", and I
should like to recommend them both. You don't need to chose between them. A great neglected personality finally is treated with the compassion he deserves.
