Ok, we will see something pertaining to the1920s era. When I think about 1920s
music, I think about Duke Ellington.
The music was so different
that what we hear now. Music is in a
different style today as we know.
Shuffle Along, was the first Broadway
musical written, produced and performed by
African Americans. IT open May 23, 1921.
(See it’s great to remember the anniversary
of Black History events)
That song Shuffle Along ran 500
performances and the cast of the song
were Josephine Baker, Ethel Waters, and Paul
THe Show was a definite success
and was performed by 3 different touring
companies, which broke barriers for
African Americans all over the country.
IT reminds me how one thing leads to
another big thing. Breaking barriers can
be done so many ways.
