Boing, Boing delivered the story of Alice Barker to my newsfeed last week. Great story of a Harlem Renaissance dancer seeing her herself dancing in some “Soundies” filmed about 70 years ago. According to the producers of the video, Alice had never seen these films. You can watch Alice Barker watching herself here.

And then you can see the original films here.
