Emma Russell (née Geller) was a female Human who lived in the 20th century. She was the wife of Fox Russell, the sister of Ardelia Mathis and the mother of Benny Russell. Emma lived in Harlem in New York City.
Emma, as well as her sister, was a dancer and performed at the Cotton Club in the 1920s, where she met her future husband. After her marriage in 1923 and the birth of Benny the following year, Emma briefly gave up dancing to raise Benny. She would later return to dancing, although she also had to work in a laundry to support her son, especially after her husband left. Emma's health failed in 1936 and she died in 1938.
