The club can be an opening of opportunity, a cavity of community, or an environment of excitement. For those that are lucky, this can also be the location to love. Dating back to the early 1900s, there are so many prominent Black celebrities that have love stories that started in the club. I’ll tell you about those, plus the love story of Harlem Renaissance entertainer Gladys Bentley, who frequently tempted and amused her audience in the many clubs she played in.
