The producers of HBO’s The Deuce based the main character “Candy” (Maggie Gylenhaal), in large part, on the pioneering work of Candida Royalle. As an homage, in two scenes where we see “Candy” at work, the monitors display scenes from Femme’s ‘Urban Heat’.

One year after her death, Candida’s work goes to Harvard. Despite her departure from this physical plane the work, the art and the vision of Candice Vadala aka Candida Royalle lives on. Her meticulously kept archives have been acquired by the Schlesinger Feminist Library at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. The archives of her Club 90 sisters Gloria Leonard and Veronica Hart have also been acquired. As early as this fall, information from these archives will be used in classroom sessions. But the main focus of the Schlesinger Library under its director Jane Kamensky and curator, Katherine Allamong Jacob, and its archivists will be to digitize files so that they are available online and by appointment to researchers and scholars. It is expected that this process will be completed by early 2018, accompanied by a celebration. – Veronica Vera
