Vintage Black Glamour

by Nichelle Gainer


This beautifully produced and highly acclaimed book is packed with rarely seen photographs of Black actors, models, writers and entertainers of the early part of the 20th century, many of whom have been sorely neglected—until now.

Author Nichelle Gainer scoured libraries and private photographic collections to create profiles of world-renowned Black stars such as Josephine Baker, Dorothy Dandridge and Diana Ross plus those of less-known but hugely important artists such as opera singer Margaret Tynes, Cotton Club star Margot Webb, pioneering model Ophelia De Vore, and many, many more.
