Hollywood Cinema Series » Shirley Temple and Bill “BoJangles” Robinson

Join us in the final days of The Art of American Dance exhibition for a screening of the 1935 movie The Little Colonel, which includes one of the most iconic scenes in American movie history: the staircase dance that Temple performed with Bill “Bojangles” Robinson. Featuring the first interracial couple to dance on screen, this scene was so controversial that it was cut from screenings in the South.

Sponsored by inVeritas, Demara Titzer, and JTH Productions.
