Summary:
Jewel's Catch One celebrates the legacy of a legendary Los Angeles nightclub, Catch One, and the life-changing impact its owner, Jewel Thais-Williams, had on her community. For four decades, Jewel broke down racial and cultural barriers and built the oldest black-owned disco in America, creating one of the original safe spaces for LGBTQ, Black and Aids impacted communities. As her club grew to become known as the "unoffical Studio 54 of the West Coast," Jewel became a national role model for how to fight discrimination and serve the less fortunate. With exclusive interviews with Sharon Stone, Thelma Houston, Evelyn "Champagne" King, Madonna, Sandra Bernhard, Thea Austin, Jenifer Lewis, Representative Maxine Waters and Bonnie Pointer. Jewel's Catch One trumpets the music, fashion, celebrities and activism that helped changed the course of our country -- Publisher.
