Don’t wait for the film! See the Brown Skin Showgirls!


Step Right Up, Folks! I’ve got big news! In an effort to document the rich history of my grandfather Leon Claxton’s Black and Cuban stage show, Harlem in Havana,  I’m creating a collection of black and white photography books called Brown Skin Showgirls. And,  the Cuban Edition, Vol II, is now available on Amazon

Brown Skin Showgirls, Vol II: The Cuban Edition is a photographic collection of the Cuban women who performed rhumba, salsa and calypso on the wildly popular Harlem in Havana Revue in the 1950s- and wowed audiences from the U.S. to Western Canada! Encased in a beautiful glossy cover, this book is perfect for your coffee table!

Also, when you purchase any Brown Skin Showgirls book, your support helps to fund the documentary film, JIG SHOW |Leon Claxton’s Harlem in Havana, which is coming in 2019. As always, I thank you for your continued support as I work to revive and preserve Black and Latin Entertainment history!

Get ready to be titillated! Leslie
