ca. 1900

            A black soldier dreams that his daughter has all the opportunities and privileges that white folks’ daughters have, until he discovers that troubles go along with affluence. It was staged closer to an actual Broadway theater than any previous black-written, produced and cast show. It was just on the outdoor roof portion, rather than inside.
