She was a child prodigy at age 8, shared the bill with Count Basie at New York’s first integrated nightclub at the age of 15,and was considered a has-been by her mid-30s. But Hazel Scott’s legacy is one to celebrate. Born in Trinidad and raised in Harlem, Hazel Scott became an international star and outspoken civil-rights advocate who challenged the status quo and spoke out against deplorable treatment of black actors & musicians.
