Celebrating WHM: Edna Mae Harris

(*Celebrating Women's History Month*)

Today, we pay tribute to actress Edna Mae Harris.

Edna Mae Harris was born on September 29, 1910 in Harlem, New York. Ms. Harris would go on to become one of early Black Cinema's most popular actresses. She was also quite a singer. 

According to IMDb, Ms. Harris starred in about 23 films. One of her credits includes her contribution to "Midnight Ramble"--an episode of PBS' The American Experience.

Here she is singing "T'aint No Good"
