Singer, trumpeter and dancer. Child star, jazz pioneer and world traveller. Legend and myth. If Valaida Snowes life wasnet already sensational enough, she sensationalized it further, freely evading and embellishing the truth of her triumphs, trials and tribulations. But even after her life has been measured against the historical record, it remains a grand and compelling tale, and Valaida herself a grand and compelling figure.
