For readers of Hidden Figures and Something Wonderful, Footnotes is the story of New York in the roaring twenties and the very first Broadway show with an all-black cast and creative team to succeed--and the indelible mark on our popular culture.

These pioneering performer and the creators (composer Eubie Blake and lyricist Noble Sissle) sowed the seeds of the Harlem jazz scene and paved the way for people of color on stage and screen with West Side Story, Black Panther, and of course, Hamilton. Importantly, this book illuminates the ways in which black people in America have attained success amidst a culture actively whitewashing, controlling, or completely preventing their stories from being told.
