Eartha Kitt (1927–2008) was a fearless and outspoken singer, actress and entertainer who achieved international stardom with her remarkable artistry.

After a turbulent childhood, Eartha Kitt settled in Harlem and found acclaim from a young age in Broadway. Orson Welles cast her in his production of “Dr Faustus”, and soon after her mix of sultry exotica and humorous jazz cabaret found a global audience. Famous for playing Catwoman in the Batman TV show from 1967, Kitt’s career met unlikely resistance in 1968. After she made anti-Vietnam War comments at a White House dinner, the CIA leaked a slanderous dossier about her private life. An undisputed icon, Kitt’s unique career left an indelible mark on entertainment and cultural history.
