In Dahomey

In Dahomey (1903) was the first all-Black musical on a major Broadway stage. Performed over 1,100 times in the US and England between 1902 and 1905, In Dahomey was created and performed entirely by African Americans, showcasing the talent of conservatory-trained composer Will Marion Cook and the popular vaudevillians Bert Williams and George Walker. The lyrics were written by African American poet and author Paul Lawrence Dunbar and Alex Roger. (FYI - Dunbar was a childhood friend of Orville and Wilbur Wright in Dayton, OH & today the African country of Benin is the site of the former prominent kingdom of Dahomey.)
