LaTricia Pettis White’s 16-year-old daughter, Empress Hardimon, closes the back window on the Beautiful Ones piled into LaTricia Pettis-White’s car Thursday after the group’s performance at Prairie Living in Chautauqua in Carbondale. “I’ve been a beautiful one for about seven years now,” Hardimon said. “My mom and my older brother taught me a lot of dancing and they really brought out how much I love dancing.” — March 31, 2016, Carbondale, Ill.
