Thoughts on Shirley Temple Black and Bill Robinson

Rest in peace, Shirley Temple Black. She was such a talent (to this day, I've never seen such a young child tap dance as well she did), who brought joy to millions and lived a truly accomplished life. In the otherwise wonderful 1995 Broadway show "Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk," she was satirized for her dance numbers with the legendary Bill "Bojangles" Robinson in dated films such as "The Little Colonel," which I found unfair. Seeing the two of them dance together not only demonstrated racial harmony, but spoke to what was in real life a great friendship and mentorship. "The Little Princess" will live on in our hearts.
