This latest episode of “Strong Black Legends” highlights the life and career of living legend Jackeé Harry. The Harlem raised, former school teacher discussed highlights of her career and life.

Jackeé Harry talks about being a Black Female Comic
This episode is like most others, ranging fromwildly funny and light-hearted, to hard-hitting and poignant. Jackeé talks about the difficulty of being a Black female comedian, especially one with so much sex appeal. The ladies also jokingly discuss whether Jackée is going to adopt Tracy.
Great comedy Podcast
We found this episode to be insightful and funny, of course we’re biased because 2 of our writers have unhealthy levels of infatuation with Jackeé (yes, even after all of these years). The once smoking hot vixen has become a smoking hot cougar, and she hasn’t lost a drop of sexiness. If you like Jackeé, listen to the full podcast and subscribe to the podcast. Like Tracy Clayton?

Why are some many pictures of Kym Whitley labled as Jackeé? They kinda look alike, but not really. Come on internet a.i., you gotta do better!
