Missy Elliott’s Super Bowl takeover reminded me of this: If she acts, this could be a great role for her. Gladys Bentley (1907-1960) She was a 16-year-old renegade when she arrived in Harlem in the 1920s and was an immediate success singing at rent parties and clubs. Unapologetically masculine onstage, she was known for her signature top hat and tails and her gleefully obscene set drew large crowds to her shows at The Clam House, the famous gay club, and other hot Harlem venues of the day.

This iconic image of the one and only Eartha Kitt appears in my book Vintage Black Glamour. It was taken by Moneta Sleet, Jr., the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ebony photographer, in 1956 at the opening of Roxanne’s Dressmakng Shop in New York City, co-owned by Ms. Kitt.

Happy New Year to my dear Vintage Black Glamour readers and friends! I am a writer but…. I do not have adequate words to express my gratitude and the elation that I feel about everyone who purchased my book this year - and supported VBG from the (social media) beginning in 2011. Thank you SO much and Happy New Year (from The Three Degrees and me)!!
