Jewish Film Festival – Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me

April 29, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Senior Matinee

The most public African American figure to embrace Judaism, Sammy Davis, Jr. was a complicated human being, a talented and versatile performer, and an artist who bridged shifting racial politics. This long-overdue biography of Davis deftly depicts a uniquely gifted entertainer whose trajectory blazed across the major flashpoints of American society from the Depression through the 1980s.
