Logline

The glorious legend of Leon Claxton’s Harlem in Havana- a so-called "Jig Show" that endures racism, segregation and immigration laws to become popular in the 1940s through the 1960s, and the brave African-American showman who left an extraordinary entertainment legacy despite the insurmountable odds against him and his dreams.
