All Corporal Jericho Jackson (Paul Robeson) wants to do is fight for his country but on his way to the battlefields of
Europe, he accidentally kills a man and is sentenced to the firing squad. But Jericho won’t obey this unjust verdict.
Making his escape, he flees to Africa and finds a new life leading a desert tribe, defending them against violent
brigands. However, Jericho’s past is pursuing him: a former friend has vowed revenge and is catching up fast...
Paul Robeson was the first African-American movie star and Jericho was one of his greatest films. Blending the
songs – and the action – his fans had come to expect, it shows this amazing talent at the height of his powers
