Additional Information

It's Hollywood's heyday and the streets of Los Angeles are filled with glitz, glamour, and the chance at stardom - that is, as long as you have the "right" look. But when former maid Vera Stark lands a groundbreaking role in a new Southern epic, she turns Hollywood on its head and paves the way for future generations of black actresses.

More than five decades later, Vera's influence on race, film, and feminism has seeped its way into pop culture. But who is the real Vera Stark?

Part comedy and part commentary, Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage's West Coast premiere uses today's fascination with celebrity and controversy to get the truth behind the legend.
