Stephanie Stegen




Safe travels, Ms. Nichols; you were always the cool & calm presence during the show, but most importantly, you went where no woman of color had ever gone before. As a white child growing up during the 60’s in California, I never viewed you as a black woman, but rather as a character that I could admire because of her strengths. May your family take great pride in your accomplishments & know that she will always be remembered as a wonderful lady.
