Vintage Black Glamour: Gentleman’s Quarters
Nichelle Gainer filled the original Vintage Black Glamour book with the stories and photographs of the women who epitomised black glamour. Now it’s the turn of the men to show off their style, glitz and panache.
Alongside profiles and photographs of world-renowned Black stars such as Duke Ellington, Sidney Poitier and Muhammed Ali, Vintage Black Glamour: Gentlemen’s Quarters —like the first book—contains biographies and images of less-known but hugely influential artists. Gentlemen’s Quarters includes pioneering photographer Charles ‘Teenie’ Harris, Flournoy Miller, the writer behind the original Broadway version of “Shuffle Along” the first black musical on Broadway, the magnetic 70s actor, Calvin Lockhart and many, many others. Their stories — often neglected in mainstream histories of their profession — are revealed in this groundbreaking book.
