I’m pretty sure this is the lady that played yzma in the emporers new groove

Motherfuckers, educate yourselves when it comes to Eartha Kitt.

Eartha Kitt is Catwoman. She is Freya. She’s Shaleem-La-Lume, Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, Angel, and Helen of Troy.

She was a civil rights activist, a peace activist, an LGTBQ activist (considering it a civil right), did benefit concerts and fundraisers for HIV AIDS orgs, she testified on behalf of “Rebels with a Cause” to set up their youth clean up group, she made Lady Bird Johnson cry when commenting on the Vietnam War while she was IN THE WHITE HOUSE FOR A GODDAMNED LUNCH. The CIA called her a nymphomaniac for it.

AND HAVE YOU HEARD HER SING? Cheesus, she’s got a star of Hollywood blvd for a reason. 

We all may know her best as evil Yzma but she was a heaven sent kind of lady.

YES!

Some of these younguns may know her as Yzma, but my grandma has been a fan since before my parents birth so I ain’t never slept on Eartha.

I remember watching her old movies on my grandma’s projector in the summer as a child.

My Kemetic brother, Jeff Spencer (Asetreshetef) was Eartha Kitt’s bodyguard before he started working for SAG (the Screen Actor’s Guild) Jeff even drew one of her album covers for her. Such an amazing lady!
