Summary
Eugene Jackson became a child star in 1924, playing "Pineapple" of the original Our Gang comedy shorts. But that was just the beginning of a long show business career that included vaudeville, film, and television, as well as cross-country touring with his own band, the Jackson Trio. Now in his eighties and living in California, Jackson continues to teach tap and to appear in film and television roles. Join Eugene Jackson as he shares his life story - a story that preserves the history of vaudeville and early Hollywood, and chronicles the African American experience in twentieth-century entertainment
