When thinking about dance in America, a few names and
stylists immediately come to mind — Fred Astaire, Ginger
Rogers, Gene Kelly, or ballet great George Ballanchine and even
Mikhail Baryshnikov. But lost in this history is the profound
impact of African Americans on American dance.

GUEST:

BRENDA DIXON GOTTSCHILD, a professor of
performance studies in the dance department at Temple
University in Philadelphia. She just published a new book
called, Digging the Africanist Presence in American
Performance: Dance and Other Contexts.
