Do Not Go Gentle: Songbird
Name: Lucille De La Mere
Date of Birth: August 8th 1920
Things ain’t easy for a woman from New Orleans, especially a mulatto Creole. It’s a white man’s world, and you’ve worked for the white man’s army for the whole war. Sure, you’re a star now, and you headline jazz gigs that should belong to more talented musicians, but when life offers you nothing but heartbreak kisses and bourbon, you end up drinking a little more bourbon than you ought to. In 1950, you’re 30 years old and still unmarried, and though you’ve got no shortage of suitors you know you’re never going to be a Suzie homemaker. Suzie homebreaker seems more likely…
