102 Year Old Woman Sees Herself On Film For First Time
Alice Barker was a chorus line dancer during the Harlem Renaissance of the the 1930’s and 40’s. She danced at clubs such as The Apollo, Cotton Club, and Zanzibar Club, with legends including Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, and Bill “Bojangles” Robinson.
Although she danced in numerous movies, commercials and TV shows, she had never seen any of them, and all of her photographs and memorabilia have been lost over the years.
But she had never seen herself on film. That all changed when volunteers at a nursing home found a vintage video of Barker and showed it to her for the first time.
