27 November, 1922 – 21 April, 1923

A musical written as a sequel to Shuffle Along. Credited as the first black musical comedy owned and produced on Broadway entirely by black capital. Concerned a woman—the daughter of a small-town mayor— who has fallen in love with a schoolteacher. The young man is unjustly accused of embezzling public funds. In the end the truth comes to light, the young man is exonerated, and the happy couples are able to wed.
