Earlier this week, we posted a quote from Judith Jamison, the Artistic Director Emerita of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.  Judith has had an incredible career as a dancer and a choreographer.  We encourage you to take some time to learn more about her story, hear her voice, and view her life’s work.  Here are just a few videos to start you on your research journey.
