Directed by Sam Pollard | 2017

One of the most electrifying entertainers and polarizing personalities of the 20th century, Sammy Davis, Jr. was a larger-than-life talent who endured racism from the white community as he broke the color barrier, as well as a controversial political figure frequently viewed with suspicion by the black community. Featuring interviews with Jerry Lewis, Whoopi Goldberg, and Billy Crystal, this in-depth documentary sheds light on the life and times of a transformative artist whose story speaks volumes about the complexity of race relations in America.
