Joanne Kilgour-Dowdy's photo-autobiography


A sneak peek at Trinidadian dancer Joanne Kilgour-Dowdy's short 'photo-autobiography' In the Public Eye. The book covers her years in Trinidad, then at Julliard and thereafter.

    I have always admired Joanne Kilgour. I remember, as a young man, seeing her do a breast examination tutorial for either the Ministry of Health or the Cancer Society and I was struck by her spirit and courage, doing something like that in a society such as ours, in that time period. She was actually my first female heroine.
