Interviewees Gregory Hines, Ruth Brown, Honi Coles, Buster Brown, Percy Sutton (owner of the Apollo Theater), Lon Chaney, Chuck Green, Van Porter, and Ted Levy offer insights into Bates' dancing, the difficulties faced by black performers during his early career, and the impact of his success as a black performer and resort owner
