Luisa Martinez interviews Sharon Rudahl, artist and writer of A Graphic Biography of Paul Robeson: Ballad of an American. Rudahl was commissioned by Rutgers University Press to create the novel both as a way to honor Robeson, a Rutgers alum, and to make a biography of him accessible to people of all ages. Robeson was world-renowned African-American athlete, singer, actor, scholar, and activist who fought for anti-colonialism, civil rights, and international peace. The book was published in honor of his graduation from the university in 1919.
