Between the Lines: Vintage Black Glamour


Vintage Black Glamour is a visually stunning addition to Black history archives. Alongside profiles and photographs of world-renowned Black stars such as Josephine Baker, Dorothy Dandridge and Diana Ross are biographies and images of less-known but hugely influential artists including the author’s aunt, opera singer Margaret Tynes, Cotton Club star Margot Webb, and pioneering model Ophelia De Vore and many, many more. Author Nichelle Gainer will be in conversation with journalist, A’Lelia Bundles, whose great-grandmother, A’Lelia Walker, is featured in the book.
