Eartha Mae Keith was born in a poor, rural family in South Carolina in 1927. Her mother was an African. Her father was a white farmer. When Eartha was eight, she was sent to New York to live with an aunt in the African-American neighborhood of Harlem. The aunt helped pay for piano and dance lessons for Eartha. But she also beat the girl. Eartha would run away after beating.
Eartha Kitt lived on the streets and worked in a factory as a young teenager. But she kept up her dance lessons. One day she decided to try out for a famous African-American dance company. Soon, Eartha was performing in shows around the world with the Katherine Dunham Dance Troupe. In Paris, Eartha left the dance company to sing in a nightclub. Her voice was unusual. She learned French quickly and gained many French fans. The film director Orson Welles discovered Eartha Kitt singing in Paris. He called her “the most exciting woman in the world”.
