Library Journal - Library Journal
Black dance is one of the richest strands in the history of American dance. This wide-ranging study focuses on the contributions of black dancers and choreographers from the 1920s to the present, with a brief discussion of the tradition's 19th-century roots. All facets of the black dance scene are presented, including classical ballet, jazz, modern, ethnic dance, and tap. Long's authoritative text is coupled with a lavish array of well-chosen photographs that document the variety and vitality of black dance and make the book a bargain at its price. Probably the most attractive and comprehensive treatment of its subject, this work is highly recommended for dance and black studies collections.-- Susan Thach Dean, M . L . S . , Barnet, Vt.
