(August 18, 2013) Author Michael Seth Starr has a best seller on his hands with the autobiography “Black and Blue: The Redd Foxx Story.” From page one, to very last page of the book, Starr takes the reader on a journey through the amazing life of Jon Sanford (AKA – Redd Foxx), from his youth growing up in Saint Louis, to his days of running the streets of Harlem, New York, with Malcolm Little (AKA Malcolm X), pulling off small cons for starters.
Redd Foxx was a man who went from obscurity playing the “Chitlin’ Circuit,” to the greatest heights of the entertainment world. At the age of 49, after working in show business for over 30 years, he became a household name as the star of “Sanford and Son,” a show that took the NBC network to the top. It is all highlighted in this book in great detail. Foxx lived a lot of life in his 68 years on planet Earth, seeing success and failure, but never losing his amazing comedic wits.
Starr did his research, and then some, to bring the readers and fans of the late Redd Foxx a quintessential look at the man behind the comedic mask.
I highly recommend this book….
