Being Eartha Kitt



Beautiful.

Bold.

Talented.

Determined.

Sassy.

Smart.

We are happy she was here.

Ms. Kitt was a phenominal woman!

Earth Kitt was indeed phenomenal. She emerged from a life of struggle and began her career with the great Katherine Dunham, another phenomenal woman.

"I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please
And to a man
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees
Then they swarm around me
A hive of honey bees.
I say
It's the fire in my eyes
And the flash of my teeth
The swing of my waist
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally
Phenomenal woman
That's me."

Maya Angelou, excerpt from Phenomenal Woman
