Author and pop culture expert Caseen Gaines virtually visits the library to discuss his new book, “Footnotes: The Black Artists Who Rewrote the Rules of the Great White Way” on Tuesday, June 1, from 7 to 8 p.m. The book is the triumphant story of the all Black Broadway musical that changed the world forever. Gaines takes the audience through the glitz and glamour of New York City during the Roaring Twenties to reveal the revolutionary impact one show had on generations of Americans, and how its legacy continues to resonate today. The book is also the account of how composers Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake, along with comedians Flournoy Miller and Aubrey Lyles, overcame poverty, racism, and violence to harness the energy of the Harlem Renaissance and produce a runaway Broadway hit that launched the careers of many of the twentieth century’s most beloved Black performers.
