Presented by Dr. Lauren Rebecca Sklaroff, Associate Professor of History at The University of South Carolina, author of Red Hot Mama

Sophie Tucker was a star in vaudeville, radio, film, and television. She entertained audiences for sixty years and inspired a host of younger women. She was the first female president of the American Federation of Actors. She advocated for African Americans in the entertainment industry and was a generous philanthropist. Drawing from the hundreds of scrapbooks Tucker compiled, the book presents a compelling biography of this daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants. She understood how to keep her act fresh, to change branding when needed and how to connect with fans, the press and entertainment moguls.

“Tucker stands out as an exemplar of the immigrant experience and a trailblazer for women in the entertainment industry.” ­—Jewish Book Council Authors on Tour book. Book sale and signing after the presentation.
