Geoffrey Holder, a Guggenheim Award-winning painter and the Tony Award-winning director and designer of the Broadway musical The Wiz, is also a well-respected choreographer and set and costume designer, for his own company as well as for the Dance Theater of Harlem and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. As readers learn in this exuberant portrait, this transplanted Trinidadian is also a man with a compelling story to tell about his experiences as an artist and outsider who found success in America.

Jennifer Dunning, a dance critic at the New York Times, provides an appreciation of this multitalented artist and his many contributions to the arts community, while the illustrations reveal his wide-ranging creativity and exciting social life in Paris, New York, and the Caribbean.
