by Halifu Osumare

“Osumare has engaged with black dance as performer, choreographer, educator, arts administrator, researcher, and activist in the United States, Africa, and Europe, and through multiple careers. In this equal parts memoir, autoethnography, history, encyclopedic catalog, and sociocultural analysis, she traces her activities from the 1960s through the late 1990s, as she becomes a tenacious advocate for black dance. . . . An eclectic mélange.”—Library Journal 
 
“A lovely example for any dance student to see that art does not exist in a vacuum but is a response to and reflection of artists’ experiences, conflicts, and boundaries created by themselves or society.”—Journal of Dance Education

“Explores the relationship between dance and culture from the perspective of someone who celebrated both, intertwined.”—Sacramento Bee

“[Osumare] recounts four decades’ worth of poignant personal experiences using dance as a tool for social change and justice. . . . Her perspective on black dance in America will benefit the whole dance community.”—Dance Teacher
