Song of Freedom
Directed by J. Elder Wills
Song of Freedom
Song Of Freedom is a soaring musical drama that explores one man's rise to fame as a concert vocalist and subsequent exploration of his African roots.
Paul Robeson stars as John Zinga, a British-born stevedore who is discovered by an influential impresario and becomes a singing star. His newfound wealth and prestige allow him to return to Africa and trace his lineage, whereupon he discovers he is the descendant of a tribal princess whose people have fallen under the corrupt rule of spiritualists.
Song Of Freedom features perfomances of "Sleepy River," "Lonely Road," "Song Of Freedom" and "The Black Emperor." In addition to these stirring numbers, the film contains many interesting scenes depicting interracial working-class camaraderie, a milieu that was all but absent in most all of the American films produced during this same historical period.
