It's a Commitment


A Dance Dialogue

Today’s piece is brought to us through an interview by Margaret Laurena Kemp, assistant professor of Theatre and Dance at UC Davis. A few years back Margaret interviewed two women who love dance openly and passionately. Not only do they love it, they’ve rallied and fought for it.

In this piece, you hear from Black modern dance scholars Dr. Halifu Osumare and Dr. Brenda Dixon-Gottschild as look back through their lives to find the threads that bind it all together.
