Patricia Kullberg takes a look back at a famous Black entertainer whose career was ruined and her legacy pretty much erased from history after she stood up to the House Un-American Committee. Patricia reads from an essay about piano prodigy and jazz musician Hazel Scott, entitled She was Once the Biggest Star in Jazz. Here’s why You’ve Never Heard of Her. It was written by Lorissa Rinehart and published Feb 22 2023 in the online journal Narratively.
