"Profiles of Three Black Testifiers in the Investigation of Paul
Robeson's Potential Threat to the USA by the House Un-American Activities
Committee" by Jesse Friedman.
- Three "testifiers" are:
1) Manning Johnson - paid informer for the Justice Dept
2) Jackie Robinson - he was intimidated into giving weak testimony,
3) Canada Lee - because he had lost his income through the black list, he was
intimidated into testifying against Robeson.. Interesting for information
relating to the Committee hearings. An excellent article but marred by
anti-Communist apologies, etc.
