Reflecting a Spectrum of Experience
This chapter examines Alvin Ailey's experience in the field of concert dance in the US during the 1960s and the 1970s. During this period, Ailey became increasingly known as a leading exponent of concert dance and continuously spoke for increased opportunities for African Americans in dance. He made various plans devoted to the cultural heritage of black America and he aimed for the African American dancer to enter through the front door of the mainstream of American dance.
