By The Way, Meet up with Vera Stark will take us to the Golden Age of Hollywood and shines the spotlight on Vera Stark, a headstrong African American maid and aspiring starlet. Vera’s everyday living is remodeled when she’s forged in a trailblazing role… in a motion picture starring her boss. Many years later students and historians grapple with Vera’s legacy in Hollywood and the impression race had on her controversial occupation. This spritely, sly satire is a journey by way of Vera’s seventy-year daily life and a sharp get on race and lifestyle — both of those in the earlier and nowadays.
