“The artist must take sides. You must elect to fight for freedom or for slavery. I have made my choice.” -- Paul Robeson
Paul Robeson, singer, actor and athlete extraordinaire, went to Rutgers on a full academic scholarship. He won every speaking competition for which he was eligible, was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and class valedictorian. As an athlete, he was named All-American in both 1917 and 1918. But he was only named to the College Football Hall of Fame posthumously.
