Llanchie Stevenson

My interest is in the lives and life stories of African Diaspora women (particularly those in the arts), highlighting expressed articulations of identity and belonging.  Llanchie Stevenson was a pioneer African Diaspora dancer in Ballet.  Her conversion journey changed her path and transformed her life.  Her story is powerful, riveting, and more.    Please share your thoughts please.
