Summary
Examines entertainer Sammy Davis Jr.'s journey to create his own identity, as a black man who embraced Judaism, through the shifting tides of civil rights and racial progress; a veteran of increasingly outdated show business traditions, he strove to stay relevant, even as he found himself bracketed by the bigotry of white America and the distaste of black America. Features new interviews with Billy Crystal, Norman Lear, Jerry Lewis, Whoopi Goldberg, Kim Novak, and others, with photographs from Davis's personal collection and performance footage
