Modern Dance, Negro Dance
Race in Motion
By (author) Susan Manning
Modern Dance, Negro Dance by Susan Manning
Book DescriptionThrough photographs and reviews, documentary film and oral history, Manning intricately and inextricably links the two historically divided traditions. The result is a unique view of American dance history across the divisions of black and white, radical and liberal, gay and straight, performer and spectator, and into the multiple, interdependent meanings of bodies in motion.
