Trinity Commons Speaker Series with Judith Jamison

February 18, 2021

Choreographer, dancer, and living legend Judith Jamison has dedicated her life to telling stories and history through dance in New York City and all over the world.

As artistic director emerita and principal dancer of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Jamison worked closely with the dance company's founder for decades and speaks of Alvin Ailey's “courage in the middle of the Civil Rights Movement to communicate truly who we are, part of the panoply of American culture. [Yet] here we are in the 21st century, still fighting for civil rights.”

This Black History Month hear from Jamison about the importance of representation in the arts, honoring and preserving the past through dance, and the courage dance offers us in this challenging time.
