It don’t mean a thing, unless a 102-year-old can swing!

Back when swing was king and the Harlem Renaissance was in full flight, the first music videos were made.  They called them “soundies.”

A visitor to a 102-year-old woman, who used to dance at the Cotton Club, found soundies she’s never seen of herself dancing with the Harlem swing kings. He shows her – and she wants to get out of bed and do it all over again
