- Program Description
During the birth of Harlem's Jazz Age, two girls, one black and one white, meet by accident and become friends. Rose hides in the back seat of her talent scout father's car as he heads out to see a vaudeville show at Harlem's Lincoln Theatre. Before the show, she wanders off and is drawn to the home of Tom Waller by the sound of his piano playing. There she meets Lucie, who is visiting Tom. At the rousing conclusion, the girls go together to the vaudeville show where Lucie is reunited with her father and Tom takes his first bow as jazz pianist "Fats" Waller. Narrated by Ruby Dee.
