Event Details

The inspiring story of Clayton “Peg-Leg” Bates, tap dancer extraordinaire and entrepreneurial resort owner, has never been more relevant. Overcoming the double challenge of a physical disability and Jim Crow era racism, Bates rose to become an international jazz dance star of stage and television. Refusing to rest on his laurels, he then parlayed his celebrity to found and operate The Peg Leg Bates Resort, an oasis for African Americans in New York”s Catskill mountains. Peg Leg Bates narrates his own extraordinary saga of Black empowerment with additional commentary by Gregory Hines, Ruth Brown, Percy Sutton and Honi Coles.
