Brief bio from Wikipedia:
Carmen De Lavallade (born March 6, 1931) is a dancer, choreographer, professor and stage and film actress. She was born in Los Angeles, California to Creole parents from New Orleans, Louisiana. She was raised by her aunt, who owned one of the first African-American history bookshops on Central Avenue.[...]
In 1955, she married dancer and actor Geoffrey Holder, whom she had met while working on "House of Flowers." It was with Holder that De Lavallade choreographed her signature solo "Come Sunday," to a black spiritual sung by Odetta Gordon. The following year, De Lavallade danced as the prima ballerina in "Samson and Delilah," and "Aida" at the Metropolitan Opera. She also made her television debut in John Butler’s ballet "Flight," and in 1957 she appeared in the television production of Duke Ellington’s "A Drum Is a Woman." De Lavallade also appeared in several off-Broadway productions, including "Othello" and "Death of a Salesman."[...]
In 2004, De Lavallade received the Black History Month Lifetime Achievement Award, the Rosie Award and the Bessie Award in 2006 and the Capezio Dance Award (in 2007), as well as an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from Juilliard in 2007.
