The Black Mann Act The Trial Of Jack Jonson is a vaudeville show that places the life of Jack Johnson on trial, as was done during the turn of the twentieth century. Jack Johnson was the first African American Heavyweight Champion during the turn of the twentieth century. His career was cut short, and his title stripped while being falsely accused of violating the Mann Act (The White Slavery Act).  The real crime was a black man openly dating white women. The play takes place in two worlds that intersect with each other.  The first world is that of a Vaudeville stage, and the second would be a turn of the century courthouse.
