Profile: Al Jolson

I remember when I learned about "The Jazz Singer" in my American history class in high school and the teacher made sure to point out how horrible it was because of its use of blackface. Well, maybe he should have done the research on exactly how much Jolson did for black people. But he was too busy coaching the track team... The high school teacher, not Al.
