The Evansville African American Museum will present its third annual "Taste of History" dinner theater Saturday at 7 p.m. with an interactive production called "A Return to Black Hollywood" that will celebrate many black actors and actresses of the segregation era who are seldom seen today, but who, at the time, were pioneers who paved the way for later stars. Produced and written by Kelley Coures, the production will feature Dr. Mureena Turnquest-Wells, Pastor Adrian Brooks, Judge Rich D' Amour and his wife Holly and Harold and Frankye Calloway, Sabrina Stewart-Thomas, Rabbi Gary Mazo, Scott Wylie and Tim Black.
