Hello Hazel Scott

Today marks the anniversary of the death of Hazel Scott in 1980. Ms. Scott was a Trinidadian-born entertainer popularized for her acumen in jazz and classical music. She also was a popular actress. Born in 1920 on June 11, she was the first African American to host a television show,  The Hazel Scott Show, which aired July 3, 1950. It wasn’t Oprah or Della Reese like many believe. There is a lot of great info about her. Do a search and learn some of it. Rest in paradise, Ms. Scott.
