Adrienne Belafonte Biesemeyer

We all know about Shari Belafonte, but little is known about her sister, Adrienne Belafonte Biesemeyer. So, I decided to get my Google on and this is what I found:

Adrienne Belafonte Biesemeyer is the daughter of famed actor and humanitarian, Harry Belafonte. Adrienne holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art from West Virginia State College and a Master of Arts Degree in Community Counseling from the West Virginia Graduate College. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a private practice focusing on children and their families. She manages a program titled: FIREWALL: STOP AIDS whose goal is to 1. get in front of the AIDS epidemic with a preventive education program targeted at a new generation of sexually active youth, with the primary purpose being to prevent the further spread of AIDS. 2. To reach teens and young adults in South Africa and the United States who's generation is at the threshold of sexual activity and who have not yet contracted HIV or AIDS, and to make this population aware of how to protect themselves from AIDS and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases. She is laying the groundwork for development of a new Life Style Curriculum for South Africa and the USA. (SOURCE: Peace Journey Bios)

Ms. Belafonte Biesemeyer is also co-founder, along with her daughter Rachel Blue, of the Anir Foundation and the Anir Experience.
