Ghost in the House: The Life and Times of Jack Johnson goes up at UCLA for a special three night engagement October 9th-11th.

Ghost in the House recounts the racism and vindictiveness of White America against a man whose talents when way beyond the ring. Johnson was a musician, raconteur, entertainer, horse jockey, bullfighter, inventor, racecar driver and secret agent during World War I. He flaunted his flashy lifestyle in the face of contemporary mores. And was the catalyst for celebrations, condemnations, deadly riots and outrage from all sides of the racial divide. He was also the most famous Black man in the world – and one of the most misunderstood.

Originally¬†a one man show, Ghost in the House stars Tony Todd, with performances by Diahnna Nicole Baxter, Eleen Hsu and Friend of the Frog Kincaid Walker. Produced by Open Minds Productions in association with UCLA Black Alumni Association, Ghost in the House runs October 9th at 8pm, 10th at 8pm and 11th at 7pm at UCLA’s Schoenberg Hall.
