Noir Night: A Look At Burlesque In Black History

Friday, February 20, 2015

An event called Noir Night is taking place near Detroit’s New Center Area Saturday night.

Sinnator Charlotte is the organizer of the event. She’s also the head of the International Black Burlesque Company.

Charlotte says Noir Night takes a look at Black history through a different lens.

She spoke with WDET’s Jerome Vaughn about the event and how she first got interested in burlesque.

Noir Night takes place at the Tangent Gallery and Hastings Ballroom at 715 Milwaukee in Detroit Saturday night at 9.
