Dancing in Blackness, A Memoir
New York on May 17, 18, & 21

Halifu Osumare, author, dancer, and Professor Emerita of African American & African Studies at University of California, Davis, has written her globe-trotting, decades-spanning, deeply personal new memoir. Dancing in Blackness, A Memoir is the inspiring story of an accomplished dance artist and a world-renowned dance scholar who has boldly developed and proclaimed her identity as a black woman. Equal parts memoir, history, cultural analysis and catalog, Dancing in Blackness finds Osumare using her extraordinary experiences to reveal the overlooked ways that dance has been a vital tool in the black struggle for recognition, justice, and self-empowerment.
