Paul Robeson — Out of Slavery

“…his father always acted like ‘a perfect Christian,’ rejecting bitterness or even unkindliness. He taught Paul that he had a special responsibility to his race — but also taught him to care ‘for all people who were unfavorably treated’ and never to assume that whites, by definition, were as a group incapable of caring, reminding him, ‘ that whites as well as blacks had given him aid and comfort in his trek for freedom.”
