Eartha Kitt – the Sex Goddess

Eartha Kitt made a mark in history and at times paid the price. America was not ready for a Black Sex Goddess, especially one who spoke her mind and got, ahem, blacklisted for it. She went to Europe as a result and recreated herself there.

She also spent some time in Turkey.  There is mention of her in the book James Baldwin′s Turkish Decade: Erotics of Exile – I highly recommend it.

At 47, I am of a mind with Miss Kitt where relationships with men are concerned. Like her, I refuse to compromise.
