California Newsreel has an excellent documentary entitled WILD WOMEN
DON'T HAVE THE BLUES

Wild Women Don't Have the Blues shows how the blues were born out of the
economic and social transformation of African American life early in
this century. It recaptures the lives and times of Ma Rainey, Bessie
Smith, Ida Cox, Alberta Hunter, Ethel Waters and the other legendary
women who made the blues a vital part of American culture. The film
brings together for the first time dozens of rare, classic renditions of
the early blues.
