African-American Concert Dance: The Harlem Renaissance and Beyond
336 p. : ill. (b&w) ; 15 x 23 cm.
"African-American Concert Dance significantly advances the study of pioneering black dancers by providing valuable biographical and historical information on a group of artists who worked during the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s to legitimize black dance as a serious art form. John O. Perpener sets these seminal artists and their innovations in the contexts of African-American culture and American modern dance and explores their creative synthesis of material from European-American, African-American, Caribbean, and African sources." -- from the back of the book
