"James Earl Jones stars in 'Paul Robeson, ' the television premiere of Phillip Hayes Dean's 1978 Broadway play. The two-hour drama is based on the life of the black singer, actor, athlete, and humanitarian who became a figure of controversy during the McCarthy era of the 1950s. The only supporting actor is musical arranger and pianist Burt Wallace, who appears - as in the stage play - in the role of Robeson's accompanist, Lawrence Brown."--1979 Peabody Awards entry form. This program was taped live before a studio audience in April 1979. It dramatizes the life of Paul Robeson who achieved distinction as a scholar, athlete, concert artist, and a stage and screen actor in 1930's and '40s. His outspoken views on racial injustices and his defense of the Soviet Union during the Cold War led to the end of his varied career. Jones, as Robeson, dramatizes many of Robeson's views on politics and race and also sings several songs accompanied on piano by Burt Wallace
