Diversifying the Narrative: stories from dancers of the line formerly known as the Ebony line and beyond part 3, featuring Anthony Brown

Showgirl's Life Podcast | ep 31 Diversifying the Narrative: stories from dancers of the line formerly known as the Ebony line and beyond part 3, featuring Anthony Brown

This is part three of a seven part series in which I feature guests that are all People of Color that performed in Hallelujah Hollywood, Jubilee, and/or Hello, Hollywood, Hello between 1973-2016. Anthony Brown started his Las Vegas entertainer journey in Reno performing in Hello, Hollywood, Hello. After one short contract, he joined the Ebony Guys and Gals line in Jubilee. He pursued different careers from police officer to professional fighter and kept his night job performing in Jubilee nightly. 

Pushing to break the color barrier with the show, he became the first Black Samson in Jubilee and later first black principal dancer. Anthony has many fun stories to share about his twenty three years in the show. Enjoy!
