Eartha Kitt was a skinny, mixed-race woman with an odd, angular face who was able to persuade 50s white America that she was the sexiest thing they'd ever seen. In this account of Eartha Kitt and the convulsive era in which she lived, racism, music, and politics combine in an unforgettable portrait of an extraordinary woman.
