The early discussions about Black Women's Dance History as a project has blossomed! With the leadership of Dr. Takiah Amin, the steadfast support of Saroya Corbett, and guidance of Dr. Jamie B. Johnson, the special edition journal of The Dancer-Citizen was published in November 2022.
Vol. 15: Ardent Dreams and Provocations: a Contribution to Black Women's Dance Histories http://dancercitizen.org/issue-15/
Welcome to The Dancer-Citizen, an online, open-access, peer-reviewed scholarly journal exploring the work of socially engaged dance artists.
This endeavor grows out of our belief in the role of the artist as public intellectual, our curiosity about how dancers observe, explain and comment on the world, and an understanding of the obligation we hold to seek and develop solutions for the challenges facing the communities in which we live and work. We recognize that our diverse roles, experiences, and perspectives as practitioners constitute a unique body of knowledge in the world.
