A yellow cover depicting a silhouette face

Blues singer Bessie Smith was born and raised in the slums of Chattanooga, Tennessee. She sang of the ills at the heart of the black woman's life; of their efforts to cope with betrayal and desertion. Her life-long defiance of the white world found expression both in her extraordinary stage presence and in her uninhibited off-stage behaviour.
