I was expecting a recent documentary but this is apparently a re-release from the 80's/early 90's. Some grainy footage but then this mostly footage unavailable anywhere else and well worth seeing. And Robeson is tied in with MLK and Malcolm X footage and commentary as well as a critique from the always succinct Paul Robeson, Jr. on the then current civil rights leadership. All Robeson fans should see this. It is an important link in the restoration of his history and as it was released shortly after Duberman's seminal biography it is the first collegiate look at Robeson's political philosophy. GREAT DVD!
