PBS American Masters Series, UNLADYLIKE2020 celebrates the unsung contribution of women throughout American history.

From the UNLADYLIKE2020 website:

From March 4 through August 26, 2020, UNLADYLIKE2020 will be releasing 26 short films and a broadcast hour on PBS American Masters profiling diverse and little-known American women from the turn of the 20th century, and contemporary women who follow in their footsteps.

Shirlette participated in the episode honoring 1920′s blues legend, Gladys Bentley, the inspiration behind shirlette’s 2016 album, Twilight for Gladys Bentley, which she calls a ‘re-imagining’ of Bentley.
