Editorial Reviews


"Dr. Dixon Gottschild's voice is convincing because of her eclectic documentation and it is touching as well because of the human experiences the reader is drawn into within the related responses of her students, her colleagues, herself, and her antagonists. She is always clear about specific objectives, leaving tempting tangents, yet incorporating the thinking of scholars and learned others in multiple disciplines--definitely in a creole mode that is rich, colorful, and not easily discounted."- Yvonne Daniel, Associate Professor of Dance Anthropology Smith College and the Five College Dance Consortium

Book Description

This ground-breaking work brings dance into current discussions of the African presence in American culture.
