Comrade Paul Robeson’s timelessly inspiring speech against racism, imperialist war, and capitalism.

In arguing for full freedom against an American ‘court’ (unconstitutional and undemocratic), Robeson affirms the liberatory movement of the socialists and exposes the oppressive nature of capitalist dictatorship.

This recording is a re-enactment by James Earl Jones.
