Kander and Ebb's 40+ year collaboration yielded several iconic Broadway masterworks, not least Cabaret (now out on tour yet again in the UK with Will Young in Rufus Norris's production that was seen last year in the West End, and is returning to Broadway again next year in Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall's revival) and Chicago (now the longest running revival in Broadway history).

Emmett Till Family: White People Still Racist Trash Regularly Committing Hate Crimes

littlebytesnews's curator insight, August 24, 2013 3:27 AM

What a lie....the majority of crimes are committed by blacks against whites, or blacks against other blacks. I can see their anger and reasons for blaming whites after what happened to Emmett Till but we do not live during those times any longer and the majority of murders committed by blacks against whites is far greater than it is by whites against blacks.
