The program was produced by Stephanie Allen and Angela Davis with technical assistance by David Parker for KPFA-FM
Lady day : the many faces of Billie Holiday by Matthew Seig( Visual )

6 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Many Faces of Billie Holiday invites viewers to see the many faces of this 'dark lady of the sonnets', as one poet called her, and to appreciate her undying art more deeply. Most presentations feature Lady Day as the sad victim of hard times and drugs. The simple fact of her life that matters above all others is that she was a great artist who, with Louis Armstrong, invented modern jazz singing. Mining a treasure trove of completely new information, the producers set the record straight -- and beautifully. In a voice that is Billie-like in its rasping wiseness and its ring, stage and screen star Ruby Dee read from Holiday's autobiography Lady Sings the Blues."--Back of container
