Vintage Black Glamour: Gentlemen's Quarters is the anticipated follow-up to Nichelle Gainer’s Vintage Black Glamour, a popular collection of photographs and profiles of world-renowned black stars. Gentlemen's Quarters contains biographies and images of lesser-known but hugely influential artists, alongside stars such as Duke Ellington and Muhammed Ali. Men like pioneering photographer Charles 'Teenie' Harris and fashion designer Willi Smith are among those profiled.
Gainer will be in conversation with Emil Wilbekin when she hosts this New York book launch conversation and signing at the Schomburg. Wilbekin is a Creative and Strategic Media, Marketing and Branding Professional and On-Air TV personality living in New York City. He is the former Editor-at-Large at ESSENCE Magazine and one of the founding editors of Vibe magazine.
