About this book

This volume explores the history of dance on the historically black college and university (HBCU) campus, casting a first light on the historical practices and current state of college dance program practice in HBCUs. The author addresses how HBCU dance programs developed their institutional visions and missions in a manner that offers students an experience of American higher education in dance, while honoring how the African diaspora persists in and through these experiences. Chapters illustrate how both Western and African diaspora dances have persisted, integrated through curriculum and practice, and present a model for culturally inclusive histories, traditions, and practices that reflect Western and African diasporas in ongoing dialogue and negotiation on the HBCU campus today.
