Motherfuckers, educate yourselves when it comes to Eartha Kitt.
Eartha Kitt is Catwoman. She is Freya. She’s Shaleem-La-Lume, Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, Angel, and Helen of Troy.
She was a civil rights activist, a peace activist, an LGTBQ activist (considering it a civil right), did benefit concerts and fundraisers for HIV AIDS orgs, she testified on behalf of “Rebels with a Cause” to set up their youth clean up group, she made Lady Bird Johnson cry when commenting on the Vietnam War while she was IN THE WHITE HOUSE FOR A GODDAMNED LUNCH. The CIA called her a nymphomaniac for it.

He comes home and we’ll dance again
Every night by my window
I think of where my father is
Every night I touch his soul
Hoping he’ll be safe
And I see him with a cry
Why can’t I dry her eyes?
But only he can make her tears go
Every night by my bed
I sing to my father’s soul
When will he come back again
Come back here home
Is this home still tame?
Even mother cries.
Can’t he see in me?
I’m part of him. I’m part of him.
I’m his home.
Every night by my bed
I pray that my father cries
Somewhere, where he can hear my prayer.
38. Eartha Kitt (Catwoman)Born in the South of the US on a cotton plantation and raised in Harlem, the self professed sex kitten was one of the most distinctive entertainers in the history of cabaret, stage and film. Born on January 17 1927 , Eartha Kitt was raised by a woman called Anna Mae, who she believed was her mother. The singer later said her father was the son of a plantation owner and had been conceived by rape. She was named Eartha after a year’s good crop. She lived in poverty until her mother met a new husband who rejected Kitt because she was a mixed race child. Described by Orson Welles as the most exciting women in the world when she played Helen of Troy in Dr Faustus, Kitt’s most famous part came as the exotic feline, Catwoman in the Batman television series from 1967-8. Originally, Kitt began her career as a member of the Katherine Dunham Company and made her film debut with them in Casbahin 1948. A talented singer with a raspy voice enriched with sultry tones, her hits included songs such as I Want to Be Evil, Just an Old-Fashioned Girl, C’est si bon and Santa Baby which was released in 1953. She possessed a strong, independent personality which matched her growling vibrato voice that lingered around the theatre long after she had finished singing. Her fierce personality erupted at the height of her fame at a White House luncheon party given by Lady Bird Johnson, the president’s wife, in 1968. Kitt was asked by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War and erupted into a doomed speech. Kitt replied: “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kid’s rebel and take pot”. She was promptly blacklisted and effectively forced to work abroad, particularly Europe.
