Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, who became famous dancing in movies with child star Shirley Temple, invented many new tap steps that continue to influence dancers today. Richmond celebrates its native son with a statue of him dancing. The statue stands next to a traffic light that Robinson, out of concern for the safety of children crossing the streets of Jackson Ward, donated to the city in the 1930s.
