The entertainment legend's story comes to life through rare family photos and a compelling narrative based on conversations between father and daughter as he neared the end of his life, offering fans a uniquely intimate experience.
Complete with rare personal and professional photos, "Sammy Davis Jr." recounts Davis's childhood, how he learned to use his talent --singing and dancing-- as a weapon against racial bigotry, his adventures through the Rat Pack era, and the extraordinary obstacles he overcame to become a 5'6," 120-pound legend who across six decades packed in more than forty albums, seven Broadway shows, twenty-three films, and countless nightclub and concert performances. What emerges from the pages of the loving, but utterly frankly written book is a uniquely personal perspective on one of the greatest pop culture icons of the twentieth century.
