Underneath A Harlem Moon
The Harlem to Paris Years of Adelaide HallBook - 2002
Often seen as the most important and influential female star of Harlem's Renaissance, Adelaide Hall dynamically pushed down the barriers that had previously prevented black entertainers from reaching mass recognition. The astounding media attention she received on both sides of the Atlantic during her two year starring role in Lew Leslie's Broadway revue Blackbirds of 1928 turned Adelaide into what can only be termed the first modern-day international black female superstar.
