Cast & Crew
The era of black minstrelsy as captured in the lives of two brothers: one an extroverted song-and-dance man determined to break tradition and own his own minstrel troupe in a field dominated by black-faced whites; the other an introverted and innovative ragtime pianist and composer struggling to break away from the stereotypes haunting black artists. Fred Karlin received an Emmy Award nomination for his musical score.
