"In the chapters that follow, I illustrate the dance pedagogy created by Black dance artists in the 1930s and 1940s in America. I discuss the ways in which this dance instruction undergirded the emergence of the Black concert dance construct, which manifested in the late 1950s and took on a definitive global presence in the 1960s with the popularity of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. In this discussion, I document the dance contributions of dance pioneer Katherine Dunham and her peers, whose works blazed a trail for many contemporary dance artists." -Dr. Elgie Gaynell Sherrod

The Effect of the Covid-19 Pandemic on HBCUs' Academic and Social Culture
 Smith-Ross, Camacia
2022 1-4955-0926-5 254 pages
From Abstract: In March of 2020, the world was faced with yet another life altering event that was viewed as a national health crisis. Silently roaming earth and affecting so many people, this infectious disease, caused by a newly discovered coronavirus, Covid-19, created alarming chaos and changed how the world communicated, worked, and lived. The new normal came with swift changes and challenged our mental, social and emotional state.
Business as usual looks differently at many institutions of higher learning. Having to face the realization that normalized learning was on the verge of changing its persona and wondering if black and brown students would be able to pivot and remain connected was in question. Recognizing HCBUs have always been havens of resilience, being a beacon of hope for "people of color," this pandemic would not change her position. The times would transform, but her glory would not fade. She would continue to move in haste focused on her mission.
