Living With Legends

by Stephen Clark

 

The Clark brothers have been in show business for seventy years. Born and brought up during the depression in the southern states of America, they first went on the road when they were four years old and are still working today.
As dancers they witnessed the birth of Las Vegas, played the Cotton Club in Harlem and went to Havana before Castro came down from the hills. They were friends with Josephine Baker, Sugar Ray Robinson and Frank Sinatra. They shared bills with Gypsy Rose Lee, Elvis, the Beatles and virtually every star in between. Sammy Davis Junior was their cousin and they taught the British pop groups of the Swinging Sixties how to dance.
In this book Steve gives an unrivalled insight into what it was like to be born into a time when boxing, singing or dancing were the only legitimate ways in which a black boy could hope to escape poverty. He paints a vivid picture of the days when the American theatres and clubs were run exclusively by gangsters and when segregation was still commonplace.
