Robert was a well-known and brilliant writer, leaving thousands of poems, innumerable plays and books of short stories, and countless essays. He won two awards from the Illinois Arts Council for his poetry. He was also an artist who painted dozens of canvases which were widely displayed.

Robert held degrees from The University of Illinois-Urbana, and the University of Chicago Divinity School. He was a professor at Daley College and Roosevelt University.
