From Emmy Award-winning director Samuel D. Pollard, here’s the first major film documentary to examine Davis’ vast talent and his quest for identity through 20th century America’s shifting tides of civil rights and racial progress. The film features insightful interviews with such luminaries as Billy Crystal, Norman Lear, Jerry Lewis, Whoopi Goldberg and Kim Novak, never-before-seen photographs from Davis’ vast personal collection, and stunning archival performances. Named Best Documentary at the Denver Jewish Film Festival and the Pan African Film & Arts Festival.

Ultimately, Pollard concludes that "he was a trailblazer: the first black American to sleep in the White House, the first to do impressions of white celebrities, the first to kiss a white co-star on a Broadway stage and the first to kiss Archie Bunker’s cheek on an episode of of his favorite TV show, All in the Family."
