Episode 23 - Bessie Blount & Florynce Kennedy

In this episode, it’s New York City, baby! Our sister spin-off show — hosted and curated by Molly O’Laughlin Kemper at KGB Bar — represents with two excellent talks about fantastic American Dead Ladies. First up is Amy Padnani on BESSIE BLOUNT. Amy is an obit editor at the New York Times, and creator of the acclaimed Overlooked series. Much like our Dead Ladies Show, Overlooked corrects history, by recognizing women who were left off the NYT’s obituaries pages over the decades. Amy introduces us to dedicated nurse, brilliant inventor, and skilled forensic handwriting analyst BESSIE BLOUNT. Then, we go big with fabulous Black feminist radical activist FLORYNCE KENNEDY, who fought injustice and spoke truth to power dressed in a flamboyant cowboy hat, pink sunglasses, and false eyelashes. Yale University PhD student Deborah Streahle tells FLO KENNEDY’s tale. DLS co-founder Florian Duijsens joins host and producer Susan Stone for the fun. The talks in this episode of the podcast come from the New York Dead Ladies Show, which is hosted and curated by Molly O’Laughlin Kemper, with support from Nicolas Kemper and Claire O’Laughlin, as well as Lori Schwarz of the KGB Bar and bartenders Dan and Seiji. See photos of fabulous FLO, and marvel at images of BESSIE’s inventions in our show notes here: __ The Dead Ladies Show is a series of entertaining and inspiring talks about women who achieved amazing things against all odds, presented live in Berlin and beyond.
