Summary "Black and Blue" is the triumphant story of the African-American experience on Broadway, seen through the rediscovered life of a unique lyric-writing genius. Born Andrea Razafkeriefo- a direct descendant of the royal family of Madagascar -in 1895, Andy Razaf’s life is a tale of breathtaking lyric talent ending in obscurity, set against Prohibition-era Tin Pan Alley, Broadway, and Harlem "after-hours" nightclubs and speakeasies.
