Meet Esther Jones the original Betty Boop – Black History

Harlem Singer Baby Esther Jones

Learn more about the original Betty Boop

I don’t know about you, but I get tired of history being tarnished by lies and mistruths. I’ve research this information and tested its validity. There’s a link provided inclusive of the court details etc. Sadly she died a poor woman. Why??? appropriation was the name of the game.

    I remember learning about this from my father and then again later on by my biological mother. Learning the back story behind histories creations have always been my favorite thing to do.

    I was always suspicious someone like Josephine Baker was the real inspiration for Betty Boop. Thank you for sharing this! Very interested to learn more about this woman.

      Like most people I know who innately loved Betty Boop, we couldn’t understand the connection until we followed up with research. I’ve known for years and each year I’ve found more and more information I can say is pretty solid
