On the back of this morning's post
I have been reading a little about a performer I am sorry to say, that I knew nothing about
She was quite a lady
“It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.”
“you have to be taught to be secondclass;you're not born that way”
In my early days I was a sepia Hedy Lamarr. Now I`m black and a woman, singing my own way
I was unique in that I was a kind of black that white people could accept. I was their daydream. I had the worst kind of acceptance because it was never for how great I was or what I contributed. It was because of the way I looked.
