Lancaster's Wall Of Fame

The likeness of Broadway star Nina Mae McKinney is just one of the faces that grace this wall of fame. McKinney was the first African-American actress to perform in a sound movie, "Hallelujah," in 1929. She also starred with the great Paul Roberson in the film, " Sanders of the River," in 1935. In 1938, McKinney was inducted into the Black Film Makers Hall of Fame. Her singing and dancing techniques served as a model for such successors as Lena Horne and Dorothy Dandridge. She died at the age of 54 in New York on May 3, 1967.
