People like Paul Robeson, who was so enthralled with the country that he would go on to record his rendition of the Soviet anthem in 1949. The entire nation was enchanted by his voice, which he often lent to folk Russian songs. The majority of African Americans who came to Russia in the wave of Depression-era immigration were seeking a better life. Speaking out about the Spanish Civil war, international labor, segregation, and colonialism were all considered un-American, earning Robeson the psychopath diagnosis. According to Matthew Wills’ essay in JSTOR Daily, when asked by a HUAC Congressman in 1956 why he wouldn’t move to the USSR if he loved it so much, Robeson replied: Because my father was a slave, and my people died to build this country, and I am going to stay here, and have a part just like you.

Paul Robeson was all these things and more. He was the son of a former slave, born and raised during a period of segregation, lynching, and open racism. He earned a four-year scholarship to Rutgers University, making him the third African American to attend the school. There he was a member of the prestigious Cap and Skull Honor Society, played four varsity sports (baseball, football, basketball, and track), won speech and debate tournaments, and managed to graduate valedictorian of his class. His legal career was cut short, however, after a secretary refused to take dictation from him solely because of the color of his skin. He left law and turned to his childhood love of acting and singing. Robeson starred in Shakespeare's Othello, the musical Showboat, and films such as Jericho and Proud Valley. He was one of the top performers of his time, earning more money than many white entertainers.
