Nobody and Other Songs

Biographer Ann Charter writes, "As a pioneer [Bert Williams] was forced into a blackface role he detested, but in the theater the warmth of his comic genius was visible behind the make-up." This collection of Williams' characteristic half-spoken, half-sung routines adds an important page to the history of African Americans in show business.
