Today’s Google Doodle honored the late Frankie Manning, inventor of the Lindy Hop.
The popular dance craze evolved in Harlem in the 1920’s and 30’s, and is evocative of the jazz music of the time. According to Independent, Manning would have turned 102 today. The choreographer was born in Jacksonville, Florida but was raised in Harlem, New York.
He became a familiar face at the city’s Savoy Ballroom, the only integrated dance hall in the Big Apple.
