On Famous African American Baha'is: Asa Bundy Sheffey, John Birks Gillespie and Fayard Nicholas

 fayard Nicholas and me.

I got to meet dance legend Fayard Nicholas when he was in the hospital in DC. I brought him food and we sat and talked about the old movie and music stars of the 30's and 40's. It was great, he and I talked like we were old friends, mostly because I am such a fan of that era's movies and music. He told me stories about Glenn Miller and Gene Kelly and it was just wonderful.
