‘That Shakespeare was not of an age but for all time has never been demonstrated more movingly on the American stage. The combination of circumstances has been close to perfect. A great Negro artist as Othello; an English-born actor and Shakespearean student as director; a gifted artist born in Puerto Rico giving a subtle portrait as Iago – this is the very form and pressure of universality in our own day.’

Samuel Sillen on Robeson’s Othello in New York City, 1943
