Stephanie St Clair life story & Jim Crow Law against Racism!

“Queenie,” “Madam Queen,” “Madam St. Clair,” “Queen of the Policy Rackets” – whichever of the many nicknames you know her by, Stephanie St. Clair is one of the most formidable mobsters of the 20th century. St. Clair spent her criminal career rubbing elbows with New York’s famous figures, from leading civil rights activists to the fearsome heads of the mafia’s Five Families. With the “Godfather of Harlem,” Bumpy Johnson, as her hired security, Stephanie St. Clair was an imposing presence on the New York underground gambling scene. Yet, her devotion to uplifting Black Harlemites through activism and education earned the respect and admiration of her peers. She was known around Harlem for many things, her frequent (and often entertaining) newspaper ads being one of them. However, it was her steadfast resolve in standing up to corrupt police officers and rival racketeers like Dutch Schultz that ultimately remains St. Clair’s biggest legacy. ⏳𝐕𝐈𝐃𝐄𝐎 𝐂𝐇𝐀𝐏𝐓𝐄𝐑𝐒 ⏳ 00:00 – Intro 04:14 – Stephanie's early years 12:58 – Boyfriend: Duke 16:07 – Boyfriend: Ed 29:38 – Her first arrest 32:12 – Prohibition ends 33:02 – Who is Dutch Shultz? 41:31 – Dutch Shultz v Stephanie St Clair for control of Harlem 47:13 – Stephanie’s marriage 49:41 – Life after her final prison sentence 🍁 𝐀𝐁𝐎𝐔𝐓 𝐃𝐚𝐧𝐚 𝐓𝐫𝐮𝐩𝐩𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐚 🍁 Your source for the life and history of infamous gangsters ... and some other stuff, too.
