Alice Barker “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing!”

Sweet Alice Barker, at 102, was seeing for the first time, her younger self dancing on video from the 1940s. She and her entire family had thought there were no existing tapes of this time until an enterprising young man found them and brought them to Alice.
