Eartha Kitt by Gordon Parks, 1952. A angel photographed by another angel.
Knowing she was alive
she took every ounce of depleted favor
every attack of insult savored
stopped and held her world in place
carved a song and moved a kingdom…..
Born from the Black Foot Indian and stolen
Born from the Arabian Knights and fallen
Born from the Mali Kingdom defamed
This is your Sister
Queen of the North Star
