Danielle Spencer ("Dee" from What's Happening)/Through the Fire
You might best remember Danielle as the child-star in the mid to late 70's sitcom What's Happening. DANIELLE SPENCER-FIELDS played the character "DEE", who was the personification of the annoying little sister. In 1993, Danielle became a Doctor practicing her second love, Veterinary Medicine. Danielle has been married since 1999 to her husband Garry Fields who works as a Clinical Research Specialist. What many fans may not realize are the challenges and triumph's Danielle has had to overcome personally, emotionally and physically to pursue her aspirations. Her book "Through the Fire...is the Journal of a Child Star" and will be the topic of her discussions at Hue-Man. She brought us many great moments in Television and I hope you let her know how much she mattered to our culture and our understanding of self in those chaotic cultural times.
