Brown-skin showgirls, whites-only audiences, and the brave African American showman who pioneered Black entertainment, and left an extraordinary legacy despite the insurmountable odds against him and his dreams.


We're donating $1 from every online order to SUSO in 2021! 

Producer Leon Claxton was a philanthropist known for his charitable acts and generous donations to worthy causes. In his honor, we have chosen Stand Up Speak Out - NC (SUSO) to be a recipient of $1.00 from every online order of the film on Vimeo in 2021. SUSO aims to empower individuals they serve by providing advocacy and  therapeutic support through Art Therapy for children and teens who are victims or witnesses to domestic violence and sexual abuse. Art Therapy is the therapeutic use of art making through creative writing, spoken word/poetry, painting, sculpting, music and dance. Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, people can increase awareness of self worth while learning creative methods to manage symptom-related stress in conjunction with traumatic experiences. SUSO-NC relies on individual contributions from existing and new donors to help them make a difference in the community. Donate more here
