Event Information

This 1943 film was one of the first to feature an entirely African American cast. A struggling performer meets a beautiful vocalist named Selina Rogers. He promises her that they will be together after he becomes a success. However, they both skyrocket to fame and lose contact. Fortunately, he just might get one more chance to woo her at a huge musical stage show. Popular entertainers of the 1940s, including Fats Waller and Cab Calloway, perform as themselves in the film also starring Bill Robinson and Lena Horne. Post-screening discussion.
