Black & White are Beautiful

A wonderful clip of Trinidadian-born jazz and classical pianist and singer Hazel Scott playing two grand pianos in the movie " The Heat's On "(1943)

Her booming career in America faltered after she testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee during the McCarthy era. Scott subsequently moved to Paris in the late 1950s and performed in France, not returning to the United States until 1967.
