In this undated photo provided by Emory University Ophelia DeVore performs on the set of "Spotlight on Harlem" with Ralph Cooper. As a model and businesswoman, DeVore worked for much of the 20th century to break down stereotypes and empower black women by giving them skills and tools to bolster their confidence and help them succeed. Emory University in Atlanta recently acquired the collected papers of the 91-year-old DeVore. (AP Photo/Ophelia DeVore papers, MARBL, Emory University)
