5 Top Picks for Vintage Swing Non-fiction Summer Reading

Your Summer Guide to Intelligent, Informative, Yet Entertaining History Reads with a focus on Forgotten women in the field of dance and Big Band Music
AUSTIN, Texas - June 27, 2018 - PRLog -- In one review Tam Francis writes that Winchell takes a look at how women played a dichotomous role in the war: girl-next-door, yet chaste sex symbol, against the kind of girl to watch out for that could give you a venereal disease. She explores the early racist profiling of good girls being middle-American white women as opposed to those of ethnic origins be it African-American, Italian, or Spanish.

In another review Francis talks about how the author looks at classic dances that moved from the stage to the black clubs and finally into popular American culture including dances like The Black Bottom, The Cakewalk, The Shimmy, and the Charleston. These pioneering women redefined what not only black women can do, but opened up the door for all women to define themselves in an artistic and independent way.
