Description - Modern Dance, Negro Dance by Susan Manning

At the New School for Social Research in 1931, the dance critic for the New York Times announced the arrival of modern dance, touting the "serious art" of such dancers as Mary Wigman, Martha Graham, and Doris Humphrey. Across town, Hemsley Winfield and Edna Guy were staging what they called "The First Negro Dance Recital in America," which Dance Magazine proclaimed "the beginnings of great and important choreographic creations." Yet never have the two parallel traditions converged in the annals of American dance in the twentieth century. Modern Dance, Negro Dance is the first book to bring together these two vibrant strains of American dance in the modern era.
