if you can make it thru this video without crying, you're a stronger person than i.


Alice Barker was a chorus line dancer during the Harlem Renaissance of the the 1930s and 40s. She danced at clubs such as The Apollo, Cotton Club, and Zanzibar Club, with legends including Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. Although she danced in numerous movies, commercials and TV shows, she had never seen any of them, and all of her photographs and memorabilia had been lost over the years.

Nice that she had such beautiful memories and could see her once vibrant self, yet sad that she has lost her physical beauty and energy.

I did and I smiled. Just sad that we as humans get to a point where we are frail and wasting away. Too bad we can't age like elves.
