During the Harlem Renaissance, Alice Barker was dancing at historic clubs for filmed movies, television, and commercials. Somehow, Alice made it to 102 years of age without ever seeing anything she danced in. Recently, with the help of the folks at Jazz on Film, Alice was able to watch a few of these classic “soundies” for the first time. She remembers often saying to herself, “I am being paid to do something that I enjoy doing, and I would do it for free.”

Kudos, Alice. That’s what it’s all about.
