1878: Entertainer Bill (“Bojangles”) Robinson, best known for his dancing roles with Shirley Temple in films of the 1930s, was born in Richmond, Virginia.

And to close today, in 1787, the Constitutional Convention opened in Philadelphia, where 55 state delegates, initially charged with amending the Articles of Confederation, later drafted the Constitution of the United States.
