African Americans have always known how to celebrate life with a grand spirit.
When the early pioneers landed in San Francisco during the Gold Rush, William Leisdesdorf, a man of African descent, set up the State’s first horse racing events over near Mission Delores.
Perhaps, this is why each block of Delores Street is configued to look like a race track.
Two Pullman Porters, of African descent, set up shop in the Barbary Coast corridor of Pacific Street and entertained with the best musical and dance talent to be seen west of the Mississippi River.
Lew Purcell and Sam King were among a few African Americans whose clubs made the Barbary Coast a destination for perhaps the most integrated good time out seen anywhere in America.
Author of “Our Roots Run Deep”, and historian John William Templeton shares with us the highlights of his exhaustive research which places the true facts of this period between 1895 and 1930 onto a well crafted bed of story telling in “Cakewalk”. A fascinating period of American history which unfolded in San Francisco and is seldom if ever talked about and certainly hardly ever revealed.
Put yourself in the dancing shoes of Bert Williams and George Walker at the turn of the twentieth century on the Barbary Coast and watch and listen as John William Templeton shares just a bit of “Cakewalk”.
