Carla Kaplan talks about "Miss Anne" on AARP Radio

New York City's Harlem was an cultural center in the 1920s that represented time of social freedom. White men could go uptown to see jazz and modern dance, but women who embraced black culture too enthusiastically could be ostracized. Carla Kaplan's Miss Anne in Harlem explores the lives of six women who crossed race lines and defied social conventions to become a part of the culture and heartbeat of Harlem.
