One of my favorite songs which I think is best performed by her "C'est Si Bon"! Here she chats up all the finer things in life with her unique manner!

She's eternal. Here's her site link: http://www.earthakitt.com/ And her filmography http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0457755/

In an era where women of color had a vertical battle in any industry, she carved amazing inroads with incredible professionalism. A truly heroic woman with a classic rags to riches life story!

"An illegitimate child, Eartha Kitt was born in the cotton fields of South Carolina, the daughter of a white dirt farmer and a black Cherokee mother. Given away by her mother, she arrived in Harlem at age nine, and at 15 she quit high school to work in a Brooklyn factory. As a teenager, Kitt lived in friends' homes and in the subways. By the 1950s, however, she had sung and danced her way out of poverty and into the spotlight: performing with the Katherine Dunham troupe on a European tour, soloing at a Paris night club and becoming the toast of the Continent. Orson Welles called her "the most exciting girl in the world". She speaks out on hard issues and plays no favorites; at one point, she drew flak from blacks by working throughout South Africa and reveling in her treatment there as an honorary white."

By Tom Weaver for IMDB

She did break some ground...lots of them did Lena,Dorothy,Diahann,etc great multi-talented beauties. But unlike them,I just wish she wouldn't have been so capricious about race relations in the beginning.
