Tomorrow: A Free Talk on Black Vaudeville

How am I spending Juneteenth? Prepping for this free talk I’m giving tomorrow!

Saturday, June 20, 2pm I’ll be giving a FREE half hour Zoom talk on the topic of the Black Vaudeville circuits. The vaudeville era, sadly, was a time of segregation. Many of America’s most talented performers (those of color) were restricted to performing only for audiences of African Americans. Others made it to the Big Time, but were denied many of the rights and privileges of white performers. Given the tenor of the times, and as an introduction to this new bi-monthly series, this talk will be free. Interested parties may write to me at and I will send log-in information.
