The show Unsung deserves so many awards and I think the series should be sold in a boxed set. Recently I was watching an Unsung episode featuring Eartha Kitt. If you don’t know her “back story” you need to read it or download that Unsung episode. Kitt was blackballed for speaking out about the Vietnam War and had to leave the United States for more than a decade.

I am so proud to have a photograph of her in my living room. It is a part of my personal Teenie Harris collection. Each photograph tells a story. I’ve had people who come in my home and tell me the pictures remind them of being in a museum. I love to tell them stores about the pictures and some of the other memorabilia in the house. In this particular picture she is signing autographs for children when she was in Pittsburgh appearing in the Owl and the Pussycat. I looked it up recently and that production began in September of 1965. The reason I bring this up is I am finding that too much history is being lost, changed or overlooked.
