102-Year-Old Sees Herself Dancing On Film For the First Time

In one of the more amazing and adorable videos to show up on the internet recently, a very elderly woman sees films in which she appeared in the 1930s for the first time. Her name is Alice Barker and she was a dancer during the Harlem Renaissance, an intellectual art movement encapsulating film, music, poetry, writing, and more during the 1920s and early 1930s. This period of unbridled creativity gave us luminaries like Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Paul Robeson, Josephine Baker, Bill ‘Bojangles’ Robinson, and many more.
