Tenor Roland Hayes shown in an image by Scurlock Studios circa 1940.

Hayes was indeed one of the most famous African United states in the usa through the entire 1920s and ended up being a controversial figure into the combat Jim Crow theaters and concert venues.

Hayes wound up being criticized by activists for not using his value to complete much more within the battle Jim Crow, but was also highly defended by other African Us citizens who argued he could do much more together with his performing than with politics.
