Aesha Ash fought negative stereotypes about African-American women all the way to the New York City Ballet and the world’s most prestigious stages. These days, you can find her—tutu and all—pirouetting around her native inner-city Rochester, New York. Through her Swan Dreams Project, Aesha combines photography and ballet to prove that artistic talent, beauty and grace are not defined by status or race.
A huge thanks to our guest editor this week, Yvonne Orji. Check her out in “Insecure,” Sundays at 10:30 P.M. on HBO.
