In Introducing Bert Williams, historian Camille Forbes reveals a fascinating figure, initiating the reader into the vivid world of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century popular entertainment. Williams’s long and varied career is a whirlwind of drama, glamour, and ambition—nothing less than the birth of American show business.

I had never heard of Bert Williams before I read this book. It was a compelling story about a entertainer that I feel was forgotten by by world. When I read about his travels to Europe and his genious it really enlightened my about his life and the life of othe African American actors living during his time. I hope this book will be made into a film because his life is one that needs to be shown on the big screen. I feel that too much has been lost about his life. I had the opportunity to attend a screening in New York of one of his lost films and I must say that it opened my eyes to the mastery of his talent.Was this review helpful?
