Paul Robeson, Isadora Duncan, and Charlie Chaplin: three famous performers who all suffered personally and professionally for their political stand. Here We Stand looks at their very different careers and how their artistic work was affected by their determined stand for what they believed was right, from Robeson's outspoken criticism of racism, to Duncan's Soviet sympathies and Chaplin's antiwar stance, which led to his expulsion from the United States.
