From his early years hanging around the New York theatres in the 1820s, to his triumphs in the capitals of Europe, this first great American black actor lived and acted among the greatest figures of his century. The first black man to play Othello in London, Aldrich's story has inspired other works, including Lonne Elder III's Splendid Mummer, a one-man play seen in New York in the 1980s, starring Charles Dutton. Kimmelman's telling of the Aldrich story is a lot more fun than an academic's biography, and gives what is probably a truer accounting of the experience of his life and career than would the careful telling by an objective scholar.
