Online Event

A Revolution in Three Acts: The Radical Vaudeville of Bert Williams, Eva Tanguay, and Julian Eltinge. Prof. David Hajdu and Artist John Carey explore how these vaudeville stars defied the standards of their time to change how their audiences thought about what it meant to be American, to be Black, to be a woman or a man, an eye-opening account of a key moment in American cultural history with striking parallels to present-day questions of race, gender, and sexual identity.
