Summary
  • "Modern Dance, Negro Dance is the first book to bring together these two vibrant strains of American dance in the modern era. Susan Manning traces the paths of modern dance and Negro dance from their beginnings in the Depression to their ultimate transformations in the postwar years, from Helen Tamiris's and Ted Shawn's suites of Negro Spirituals to concerts sponsored by the Workers Dance League, from Graham's American Document to the debuts of Katherine Dunham and Pearl Primus, from Jose Limon's 1954 work The Traitor to Merce Cunningham's 1958 dances Summerspace and Antic Meet, to Ailey's 1960 masterpiece Revelations."
  • "Through 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."--BOOK JACKET
