Hello Hilal

You’re so very welcome. She would have made Laveau’s part her own. Perhaps a new talent can run with the idea of this film. The octaroon conversation popped up again. On our way out I spoke about being called a mulatto living in Ghana — my grandmother’s German. Maybe for the split second she figured I might posses that haecceity to comprehend a bit about what she was saying. I had the immense pleasure of interviewing a fair few authors and actresses, all strong women, but Eartha Kitt’s one stays with me. One day when I can disentangle the reels in my garage I’m hoping to surprise myself.
