Simply Eartha

Last night I was so lucky to be able to hear Kitt Shapiro, the only child of Eartha Kitt speak about her mother’s legacy and the special relationship that they shared.  Kitt opened her heart to us about some difficult issues Eartha experienced being light skinned and not really fitting into the “white or black” category.  She spoke about traveling on the road as a young child and finally the sad last few days of her mother’s life with Colon Cancer.  Kitt was straightforward, honest and very funny.  She started a lifestyle brand, Simply Eartha, to honor her mother legacy, based around words or sayings that Kitt was famous for.  She called these “Kittisms”.  You can learn more about Kitt and Earta and see her beautiful products HERE
