About Randall Robinson
Randall Robinson: The Lawyer Who Fought for Justice
Randall Robinson was born on July 6, 1941, in Richmond, Virginia. He grew up in a segregated society and witnessed firsthand the injustices faced by African Americans. This experience would shape his life and career as a lawyer and civil rights activist.
Robinson attended Virginia Union University and Harvard Law School, where he became involved in the civil rights movement. He worked as a civil rights attorney in Boston before founding TransAfrica, an organization dedicated to promoting justice and equality for people of African descent.
Robinson's activism led him to take on some of the most pressing issues of his time. He fought against apartheid in South Africa, advocated for the release of Nelson Mandela, and worked to end U.S. support for dictators in Africa.
In 1994, Robinson gained national attention when he went on a hunger strike to protest U.S. policy toward Haiti. His efforts helped to bring about a change in U.S. policy and the return of democratically elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to power.
Robinson's work has been recognized with numerous awards, including the Martin Luther King Jr. Nonviolent Peace Prize and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's Image Award.
Today, Robinson continues to be a voice for justice and equality. He has written several books, including "The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks" and "An Unbroken Agony: Haiti, from Revolution to the Kidnapping of a President."
Randall Robinson's life and work serve as an inspiration to all those who seek to make the world a more just and equitable place.
