Based on a true story.
Bert Williams – in many ways the Michael Jackson of the early 1900s – rose to fame and fortune only when he began performing in blackface.
A gifted boy, yearning to be a performer, Bert will have to contend with the social dynamics of his time and his father’s disapproval on his journey to stardom.
This is NOBODY, a feature length narrative film, celebrating the first black Broadway entertainer to become an international superstar.
Roger Ross Williams
