My kitchen is a mystical place, a kind of temple for me. It is a place where the surfaces seem to have significance, where the sounds and odors carry meaning that transfers from the past and bridges to the future.–Pearl Bailey

Pearl Mae Bailey (1918-1990) was an American actress and singer. After appearing in vaudeville, she made her Broadway début in St. Louis Woman in 1946. She won a Tony Award for the title role in the all-black production of Hello, Dolly! in 1968. In 1986, she won a Daytime Emmy award for her performance as a fairy godmother in the ABC Afterschool Special, Cindy Eller: A Modern Fairy Tale.

You can see her perform in the video at the bottom of the page.
