Andy Razaf (12/16/1895 - 2/03/1973)

Andreamenentania Paul Razafinkerierfo
Lyricist, Poet, Baseball Pitcher

Andy Razaf was the son of a Madagascar prince who married the daughter of the American consul to Madagascar. With her father, purportedly the first black man in the diplomatic corps, Jennie fled to Washington, D.C. after the French invaded, killed her husband, and annexed the country as a colony. Andy was born in the states with an almost 40-character name which he shortened to Razaf. He sold one song in 1913 and left for Cleveland where he pitched in a black semipro baseball league. He came to New York in 1921 where his reputation as a protest poet (reflected in the lyrics of “Black and Blue”) landed him jobs as a lyricist with Eubie Blake, Fats Waller, and Paul Denniker.
