Synopsis

Based on a true story, Charles S. Gilpin was the first African-American to star in a leading role in a stage play during a time where roles of color were previously played by white men in blackface. As Gilpin rose to fame and recognition, tensions were high between he and playwright Eugene O’Neill which ultimately lead to parting ways, though his acclaimed performance has changed Broadway forever.
